Thomas Francis Meahger My Montana Hero

"My heart, my arm, my life are pledged to the national cause and to the last it shall be my highest pride, as I conceive it to be my holiest duty and obligation to share its fortunes." From Speech at Jones Woods, New York 1861

"The true American knows, feels and with enthusiam declares, that of all human emotions, of all human passions, there is not one more pure, more nobile, more conducive to good and great and glorious deeds, than that which bears us back to the spot that was the cradle of our childhood, the theatre of our manhood."
From Address delivered in Virginia City, Montana March 17, 1866. Inscribed below the statute of Thomas Francis Meagher Statute at the Montana State Capital, Helena, Montana.
