The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in
the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments,
their duties and obligations. *This radical change in the principles,
opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people, was the real American
Revolution. -- John Adams (1735-1826) 2nd US President "Letter to Hezekiah
Niles, 15 Feb. 1818"
