This portion of our country's history is absolutely necessary to keep alive if we wish to save this nation. Each and every one of us should know this story and teach it to our kids and grandkids, even our friends. I have no doubt if people are awakened to the cause that so many men were willing to die for, then we can turn this nation around. I recommend everyone digs deep for more information on this topic and then share what they have found.
If any of you are interested in learning more about the events on April 19, 1775, that is exactly what the Appleseed Program is founded on. Come out and here the stories told by men who know their history and love sharing the message. The story of April 19th, 1775 is nothing short of a miraculous one. Paul Revere's Ride by David Hackett Fischer is one of the best books that has ever been written on this topic.
Some of my favorite quotes/moments in the war:
When the men are watching their town burn from a nearby hill, one man turns to Capton Isaac Davis, leader of the Acton Malitia and says we aren't going to stand here and watch them burn our town are we? Isaac Davis' response was, " I haven't a man that is afraid to go".
After Lord Percey had called the Colonist worthless, beast of burden, who are all take and no action before the war had begun. Later he went to the King and told him this war was not going to be near as easy as they had initially thought for "the Colonist have men among them that know what they are about".
