Mr. Speaker,

The necessity of this measure is made only more plain by the late mutiny of the Pennsylvania militia, now subdued, and by the news newly had from the Northwest of Indian raids along our frontier. What I have said before, I will now say again: the security of the people is a duty of government more serious than any save the defense of their liberty, and this Assembly would indeed be no government at all, were it to refuse to defend the inhabitants of this country from aggressors internal or external.

I vote that the measure proposed by the gentleman from Charlottesville be passed without amendment, and advise all Whigs to follow so.

I yield my time to the chair.

Mr. Speaker,

I will continually object to the persistence of standing armies in times of peace. It is clear, however, while Indian raids persist along our frontier, that we are not living in times of peace, and may not truly be at peace until this continent is brought firmly under American rule. To defend our homes and families against imminent danger, the Western faction shall support this legislation.

I yield.

Mr. Speaker,

It is welcome to see that this Congress has come to its senses regarding our national military.

I intend full support of this Act, just as I did before when it was under Hamiltonian sponsorship. May our Senate follow suit.

I yield.

Mr. Speaker,

Our nation is facing threats from the east with the British who we have very unfriendly relationships with then to the west we have rabid Indians looking for blood. The time is now that we build an army that will defend this nation.

This bill is also very fundable since Robert Morris has graciously allowed us to forgive his debts to the nation which would make this legislation fundable.

The Patriot faction is in full support of this legislation.

I yield

After a brief debate in the Senate the National Military Act of 1791 passed with 21 votes in favor, 4 against, 3 abstentions and was promptly signed into law by President Hancock.
