Addison's Cato inspired the American revolution, quoted by Nathan Hale, Patrick Henry, John Adams, performed at Valley Forge at George Washington's request. Cato's extreme devotion to liberty and to republic (as opposed to what became empire) comes to life in a way Plutarch doesn't achieve. It is Cato who regrets he has but one life to give for his country, Cato who cries, "Give me liberty or give me death!" and chooses suicide over rather generous terms offered by Julius Caesar.
