Our Nation' Hero, Thaddeus Stevens


Thaddeus Steven is "our nation’s conscience"; a champion for civil rights, woman rights and free public education. His conscience is the source the inspiration for all men on earth, our nation’s hero, never forgotten. amendments 13, 14 and 15, were fruits of his labor made into reality, history, and the law of our land. “Twenty thousand people, one-half of whom were black free men, attended his funeral in Lancaster. He chose to be buried in the Shriner-Concord Cemetery because it was the only cemetery that would accept all races. He wrote the inscription on his headstone that reads: “I repose in this quiet and secluded spot, not from any natural preference for solitude, but finding other cemeteries limited as to race, by charter rules, I have chosen this that I might illustrate in my death the principles which I advocated through a long life, equality of man before his Creator.”   Source: StevemCollege.edu/legacy of Thaddeus Stevens
