So, what's the background on our state's motto?

Well, it goes back to Aesop, believe it or not. He used it directly in "The Four Oxen and the Lion" and alluded to it in "The Bundle of Sticks". And, of course, it's in the bible a couple of places ("And if a house be divided...").

But, the tipping point probably came with the popular John Dickinson tune, "The Liberty Song," in 1768. Then, in 1792, when Kentucky became a state, they copped that line as their motto. Here's the Dickinson song. You probably want to fast forward to the 2-minute mark so you can hear the line without going through all the lyrical foreplay.
