New Hampshire's General John Stark:
Live Free or Die: Death is Not the Worst of Evils
by Clifton LaBree
John Stark served with the famous Rogers’ Rangers during the French and Indian War, where he honed the leadership skills that placed him among the most successful military commanders of that conflict and the ensuing Revolutionary War. His extraordinary performance at Bunker Hill, the siege of Boston, the battles of Trenton, Bennington, and Saratoga, and as commander of the Northern Department, has gone relatively unheralded. He was a legendary hero, a true Cincinnatus, who embodies the values that made our country great, and is worthy of our respect and admiration.
I have written this fresh look at General Stark because I believe that his contributions to our national legacy are underappreciated. I’ve attempted to tell Stark’s story within the time frame it took place so that the readers can appreciate and be grateful for his sacrifices. He is not only a national hero responsible for helping to win our nation’s independence on the field of battle: he also uniquely represents New Hampshire’s spirit of self-reliance, independence, and love of country, which still defines the people of our state.
