"Live free or die: Death is not the worst of evils" was said by General John Stark (no relation to the Starks of Winterfell) in a toast on July 31, 1809.  The toast took place on the anniversary of the Battle of Bennington.  Due to his poor health he was not able to attend the anniversary, but instead sent his toast via letter.  Although he was not the first to utter this famous phrase the Hero of Bennington is credited as the most famous to say it.  The phrase had such an impact that New Hampshire adopted it as its state motto in 1945.
