On a serious note, I have ancestors that were in the Revolutionary War. Garret Serven was a scout with the New York State troops from the beginning to the end of the war. He was 21 when he enlisted. He was assigned to the Highlands of the Hudson where he had been born and raised. He was greatly familiar with the lay of the land. He had had direct contact with General Washington and many of the higher ranked officers in the area. He was my great-great-great-great grandfather. He became a Judge in in Orange County as a Superior Court Judge for the State of New York. He had written a poem about his service during the war and we have copies of it. My grandfather, who had a resemblance to George Washington portrayed him (GW) in what was called the local pageants which were staged at the Hinchcliffe Stadium and at the Dey Manor during the Sesqui-Centennial and Bi-Centennial periods. I really should apply for the Sons of the Revolution.

No taxation without representation rings true even today.



It is rarely mentioned why the English government levied taxes in the 1st place. Paying for the seven years war.

And we're going threw another test. Our founding fathers would be turning in their graves, if they could see what is happening right now.

The Green Mountain Boys? Sounds more like a country band than a militia.

If you are American and have never been to Minuteman National Park you should go. On the southeast side of the Old North Bridge the remains of two British soldiers are interred. There is a headstone there with the inscription "They came three thousand miles and died, To keep the past upon its throne. Unheard beyond the ocean tide, Their English mother made her moan."Β There were three soldiers reported fallen there. Their names were James Hall, Thomas Smith, and Patrick Gray. All three were privates from the 4th Regiment. Two are buried at the bridge, and one in Concord center. These could easily have been American names. It gives you reason to pause and reflect on the fact that these three young men never made it home, and that the Revolutionary War was a family fight much like the Civil War was.

Great documentary. I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when Cornwallis finally realizes his reinforcements were not coming.

Steuben was a Prussian military officer. "From europe" is a bit funny here... Nearly everyone there involved was from europe by family roots, often their only 2-3 generations ago.
