Liberty it up.

Among the natural rights of the Colonists are these: First, a right to life; Secondly, to liberty; Thirdly, to property; together with the right to support and defend them in the best manner they can. These are evident branches of, rather than deductions from, the duty of self-preservation, commonly called the first law of nature.

Uncle Sam (1996) - A Desert Storm vet, who was killed in combat, rises from the grave on July 4th to kill the unpatriotic citizens of his hometown after some teens burn an American flag over his burial site.

I had no idea this ever existed. I need to watch this today. Being that I collect horror movies and such.

A clip from the series John Adams. Liberty will reign in America once more.

Just a shout out to my family.

To my ancestors who fought in the American Revolution. Your legacy lives on my forefathers.

My family came to America in the early 1600s.

George Washington Voted Britain’s Greatest Military Enemy

By Brian Greene

George Washington’s legacy in American history has no equal, as he is universally recognized as the “Father of his country.” As the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, Washington led his troops to an improbable victory over the vastly larger and more experienced British Army, which was known then as the greatest fighting force the world had ever seen. Washington is credited with restoring momentum to the floundering patriot cause when he strategized a daring night-time crossing of the Delaware River in an effort to capture New Jersey in December 1776. Continental Army victories in Saratoga in 1777 and Yorktown in 1781 ensconced Washington’s status as an American military genius and war hero.

According to historian Stephen Brumwell, the American Revolutionary War was “the worst defeat for the British Empire ever,” so it’s no surprise that the architect of that defeat is still one of Britain’s most despised historical figures.

Britain’s National Army Museum conducted an online poll of around 8,000 people which produced a short-list of five men to compete for the title of Britain’s greatest military enemy. One important criterion for the contest was that each commander needed to have personally led an army on the battlefield against British forces, ruling out potential front-runner Adolf Hitler. Washington won this battle against Irish independence hero Michael Collins, French Emporer Napoleon Bonaparte, German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel and Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of the Republic of Turkey.
