The friends of humanity…

"The Boston Massacre" by Francis Luis Mora

“The friends of humanity will deprecate War, wheresoever it may appear; and we have experience enough of its evils, in this country, to know, that it should not be wantonly or unnecessarily entered upon. I trust, that the good citizens of the United States will show to the world, that they have as much wisdom in preserving peace at this critical juncture, as they have hitherto displayed valor in defending their just rights.” George Washington, Address to the merchants of Philadelphia, May 16, 1793
