Default This is true but...

This is true, but General Stark's toast is not simply "Live free or die".

The full toast is "Live free or die: Death is not the worst of evils."

And by the time he penned this toast, it was already a popular phrase in the French Revolution "Vivre Libre ou Mourir", (Live free or die).
