Francis and Elizabeth Lewis. They sacrificed their lives and fortune for your liberty.

The soldiers destroyed books, papers, and pictures, ruthlessly broke up furniture, and then, after pillaging the house, departed taking Mrs. Lewis with them. She was carried to New York and thrown into prison. She was not allowed a bed or a change of clothing and only the coarse and scanty food that was doled out each day to the other prisoners. For three weeks this continued during which time she was not permitted to communicate with anyone outside.

The number of citizens today willing to give all for liberty is growing.

We must all realize as Francis & Elizabeth did it ain't about us but about the next generation; our children & grandchildren because if we do not sacrifice now they will be slaves later!
