History Speaks Volumes

“APRIL 19, 1775 – “THE SHOT HEARD AROUND THE WORLD”
Today – the LEFT wants to rewrite history – they would have us believe the United States of America was created by a bunch of rich, white racists. But the truth is – 244 years ago a bunch of regular, hardworking, armed Americans like you and me united together to take a stand and fight for freedom and they kicked the crap out of the Number 1 Super Power on the Planet. The world has never been the same since.
You see back then, gun control didn’t mean the local government was going to go door to door confiscating weapons – it meant they needed to know that every able bodied man of fighting age had weapons and knew how to use them – if you were a male 16 years or older – the law required that you own a musket or a rifle – had powder – 20 rounds of lead – served and trained in the local militia. Back in Rhode Island if you went into town unarmed – they could fine you 5 shillings.
The very best of these men – the most elite –they were selected to be Minute Men –Patriots that could be mobilized to fight the enemy at a minute’s notice. These armed citizens were a direct threat to British control – Americans would never give up their guns – so the Brits decided they were going to try to take them. So on April 19, 1775 British troops marched out of Boston to confiscate weapons and ammo that they believed were hidden on the farm of Col. James Barrett of Concord.
They went to Lexington – they ran into Captain John Parker and his small band of Minute Men who were greatly outnumbered. Captain Parker told his men “Stand your ground – do not fire unless fired upon – if they mean war – let it begin here”. The Brits did fire first and eight Americans died. Then the Redcoats marched on to Col. Barrett’s farm – they didn’t find guns and ammo – what they did find was Col . Barrett’s 400 Minute Man Militia gathered at North Bridge – and once again the Brits fired the first volley – but this time when the American’s fired back the British turned and retreated – they fled the battlefield. More Minute Men – more Militia Men entered the fight and the British took another 300 casualties on their retreat back to Boston. This is the “Shot that was heard around the world” – this was the beginning of America’s fight for freedom – this is our culture – this is our history – let’s remember who we are – let’s remember where we came from – let’s remember exactly why we are Americans.
This was transcribed from a Patriot’s telling the story of the “Shot that was heard around the world”. I don’t know who the man was sitting horseback telling the story.” ~ Shirley Herrin

Montana Patriot Standing On The Front Lines Against Corruption and Tyranny

One thought on “History Speaks Volumes

  1. See you at the Helena Capital for Montana’s 2020 April 19 peaceful stand for our Constitution.
    “For in a Republic, who is “the country”? Is it the Government which is for the moment in the saddle? Why, the Government is merely a servant — merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn’t. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them”.
    Mark Twain
