Flowers left for John Scott
Thanks for everything, 6th Great-Grandfather, including pretty much sparking the Revolution with a 1765 rant about leaving the Mother Country behind (11 years before the Declaration of Independence was written), founding the Sons of Liberty and the Committee of Safety, being barred from the 1st Continental Congress because you weren't moderate enough, but later representing NY at the 2nd and 3rd CCs, encouraging Gen. Washington not to surrender Manhattan Island to the Brits, leading Scott's Brigade in three major battles, presiding as 3rd President of the Society of St. Andrew, holding office as first Secretary of State of NY, and founding the New York Society Library. Well done!
