Who Said...? "If I were an American, as I am an Englishman, while a foreign troop was landed in my country, I never would lay down my arms -- never -- never -- never!"
William Pitt at the House of Lords in November 1777. In leading the British to victory over the French, Canada and India had become British possessions. He was in conflict with King George III and his ministers over the harsh way they treated American colonists which led to the War of Independence.
