All the terrible instruments of war are the Natural Birth Right of the American citizen.
Attributed to Thomas Jefferson
I received this in email recently and it looked just a little too good to be true. I went searching for it and was only able to find one instance of it. This instance does not appear to be supported by any reference to any of Jefferson’s writings or speeches. I did extensive searches on http://www.monticello.org which I have found to be a good source for Jefferson quotes in the past.
I must conclude this is not correctly attributed to Jefferson.
