Brits rebelling against the British Monarchy.


That's what i have been waiting for someone to say.

The American Revolution was in fact a Civil War. Inhabitants of the 13 Colonies fought on both sides.

Just like the English Civil Wars when the people rose against King Charles I.



The distinction being that the English Civil Wars did not result in a new, separate nation.

The EU has been working during the past 2-3 years on new color revolutions around the globe. These plans are already up in smoke though. Nonetheless a significant number of protests and other mass events will take place without any practical consequences that would help the EU.

I disagree slightly.

With the ending of The English Civil War, England became a republic known as " The Commonwealth Of England "

After ten years England reverted back to a Monarchy.

The 13 American Colonies where there before the revolution, and after independence they kept their same names, called themselves states and united into one country.

Much the same as The Act Of Union 1707 which gave birth to The United Kingdom.

To be a little relevant to the OP, this is the Washington Tower at Mt. Auburn Cemetery.
We went to visit relatives. Nice place.

The saddest epitaph which can be carved in memory of a vanished liberty is that it was lost because its possessors failed to stretch forth a saving hand while yet there was time.

Too many of us have deeply divided ideas on what "better nation" means. A lot of us agree with those men of long ago and the ones who codified and ratified those beliefs under "We the People ..." And a growing segment think that Marx and Lenin and their kind have the better way.

That's the fight needing to be fought today, and it may mean shooting at each other - father against son, brother against brother - once again, and I don't blame anyone for being reluctant to go there. We've seen what that does to us. The nation is steal healing from that wound once.

First off fantastic post by the Op, I have read how Lexington and concord went down before but its been years and I think I was overdue for a reminder thank you.

To those dismissing what having fire arms means, you can have all the will and courage in the world... but if you don't have the means to fight there is no hope of winning if faced with a determined foe that is armed.

Being armed meant the colonies had the ability to meet their foe in the field, even if they were outgunned they had to have the ability to fight them when retreat was not an option.

But even then being out gunned didn't stop them from attaining several astounding victories against one of the best trained armies in the world at the time.

Yes the allies we had played key roles even if they were primarily sticking it to the english, having great leaders that inspired the people played even more key roles, but if we didnt have the means to fight the british at all... the revolution would have died fairly quickly, but without arms the minutemen would not have stood on the green at lexington, or rallied to concord, or even begun the siege at boston.
