Who Was John Stark?

Presenter: George Morrison

While many are familiar with the state motto “live free or die,” few might know about the man, General John Stark, who uttered these words. In this presentation, George Morrison reveals the man – a ransomed captive, Ranger officer, road-builder, lumberman, husband and father, repeatedly called-on to serve but often clashing with authority -- whose phrase has become synonymous with our state.
