HOWEVER, with the tie severed, what is the price of freedom? “We must all hang together. Or most assuredly we shall all hang separately.” Benjamin Franklin

15 W RAP- U P The Price of Freedom Lesson 9: Declaring Independence of England The example of Richard Stockton The Price of Freedom Our gratitude is deepened when we remember the price others paid to help obtain freedom. In the United States, one such person was Richard Stockton. Stockton was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. He was a prominent lawyer and wealthy landowner. Because he supported the war efforts, he and his family were driven from their home. That home was sacked and burned. Stockton was imprisoned for several years and subjected to harsh treatment that broke his health. He died a pauper at the age of 51. Yet few Americans remember this hero who paid such a high price for the cause of liberty. His sacrifice is largely forgotten. L 26 What is the BEST way to remember the sacrifices of individuals for the freedom we enjoy today?
