Writings and speeches

Ever since I got my Kindle I've been getting more and more into the writings of our Forefathers and others that influenced our Nation in it's younger years. I'd read them all before, but most of them only once and over a period of about 40 years.
Because most of the famous speeches and writings are free, I've downloaded them and re-read them as I've done so. The most passionate one by far is Patrick Henry's famous speech, but I also enjoy Paine, Franklin, Washington and Jefferson. Matter of fact I've been reading 'Rules of Civility' off and on for the past week.
I keep finding new writings but I wonder if you kind folks have something from that time period that you enjoy or remember for some reason. I'm always on the lookout for new reading material.
Sorry. Didn't mean to sound all smart and shit.
