My sentiments exactly.....

"Depend upon it, that as the spirit of America has always risen with the successes of her enemies, they will not, on this occasion, throw away their arms, and ingloriously pass under the yoke of a nation whose conduct towards her has been marked by injustice and oppression in peace, and by malice and wanton barbarity in war."
.
- John Jay, Letter to De Neufville and Son, Madrid, July 29, 1780.
[The Revolutionary Diplomatic Correspondence of the United States, Volume 4]
