SUBJECT: The Revolutionary War - 2 1776 - 1783
"Our cruel and unrelenting Enemy leaves us no choice but a brave resistance, or the most abject submission; this is all we can expect - We have therefore to resolve to conquer or die: Our own Country's Honor, all call upon us for a vigorous and manly exertion, and if we now shamefully fail, we shall become infamous to the whole world."
We will continue our discussion on the war that set us free from tyranny and the old, European method of government.
America through its struggle and birth started something the world envied...and still does today. We will discuss how freedom was brought to the world...
