The motto became “Live Free Or Die,” as once voiced by General John Stark, the state’s most distinguished hero of the Revolutionary War, and the world famous Old Man of the Mountain was voted the official state emblem.
The motto was part of a volunteer toast which General Stark sent to his wartime comrades, in which he declined an invitation to head up a 32nd anniversary reunion of the 1777 Battle of Bennington in Vermont, because of poor health. The toast said in full: “Live Free Or Die; Death Is Not The Worst of Evils.” The following year, a similar invitation (also declined) said: “The toast, sir, which you sent us in 1809 will continue to vibrate with unceasing pleasure in our ears, “Live Free Or Die; Death Is Not The Worst Of Evils.”

World War 1
100 years ago World War 1 began
48 Star Field was the current flag at the time of War
The world’s first global conflict, the “Great War” pitted the Central Powers of Germany, Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire against the Allied forces of Great Britain, the United States, France, Russia, Italy and Japan. Since the time of WW1 or before and after flags have change many times.
Here are some examples of countries:
United States-The modern flag that changed in 1960 is 50 stars on the flag represent the 50 states of the United States of America and the 13 stripes represent the thirteen British colonies that declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain and became the first states in the Union.
Germany – The colors of the modern flag are associated with the republican democracy formed after World War I. The black-red-gold colors were the colors of the democratic, centrist, and republican political parties
Great Britain–The current design of the flag dates in 1801.A white-fimbriated symmetric red cross on a blue field with a white-fimbriated counterchanged saltire of red and white.
World War I took the life of more than 9 million soldiers; 21 million more were wounded. Civilian casualties caused indirectly by the war numbered close to 10 million. The two nations most affected were Germany and France, each of which sent some 80 percent of their male populations between the ages of 15 and 49 into battle. The war also marked the fall of four imperial dynasties–Germany, Austria-Hungary, Russia and Turkey.
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burdens, meet any hardship, support any friends, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty. – John F Kennedy
WWI may have been the war to end all wars, but it was also the beginning of many military and civilian technologies.
