Frequent reference to the United States as a young nation tends to obscure the fact that it is also the oldest continuing democracy in the world. More than that, it also tends to obscure what the founders themselves understood to be the ancient principles on which they defended the Revolution. John Adams put the matter trenchantly when he noted that the Revolution was complete before a shot was fired. However, staging a revolution against a nation regarded as being one’s own in the deepest sense of shared traditions and common ancestry was a grave and entirely unsettling matter. Just a few years before 1776, some who would take a leading part in the final dissolution of bonds spoke and wrote passionately for reconciliation.
