Excerpt from Dr. Stevens's Discourse Before the Georgia Historical Society, Savannah The period of our Revolution has been termed "The heroic age of American history." The expression is beautiful and appropriate, but loses much of its adaptation, if regarded as a mere classical allusion. In the mystic stories of early Greece, this term was applied to a period memorable for the triumphs of physical strength; it was an heroic age of man, as a creature of prowess and of arms, and had no reference to his nobler nature, that "bright image of eternity within." The epoch of the Revolution, however, rests not its claims to this distinguishing epithet, upon the exhibition of any corporeal qualities, real or fabulous; but upon that union of great natural endowments with the holy principles of religion; with high developments of mind; and with all the potent influences of a refining civilization.
