October 3, 2014 – New Hampshire State Capitol and President Franklin Pierce Manse, Concord, NH (a non-RV Post)

New Hampshire State Capitol (Grounds – General John Stark Statue), Concord, NH – 2014-10-03

A Revolutionary War hero who fought at the Battle of Bunker Hill and Battle of Bennington and to whom the state’s motto, “Live free or Die” is attributed. Actually, the full quote is “Live free or die: Death is not the worst of evil” … delivered as General Stark’s toast when his poor health forced him to decline an invitation to an anniversary reunion of the Battle of Bennington. Instead, he sent his toast by letter.
