The first offering in a quintet of books spanning nearly 800 years of history of America, leading up to the present day political, economic and moral abyss that we seem to be stuck in today. OUR fist story begins with the signing of Magna Charta and continues with the words, letters and speeches of many of our Founding Fathers, including Paine, Jefferson, Hamilton, Washington, Adams, Patrick Henry, and many not so well known participants. We read commentary from people like Bruce Catton, and read the words of the Mayflower Compact, Articles of Confederation, the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights and others - as we discover our early years and the path, which we set upon. In order to unde ...

The Americans of the Revolutionary War period had to make decisions that most present-day people could not fathom. Their environment was rife with backstabbers, ne’er-do-wells, Indians and schemers; all, of whom, wanted something from them. They worked hard to take a tract of land and develop a homestead and then they had to consider if the men went off to war, could the women protect themselves and their property. War fractures economies and forces massive population dislocations. Misery befell families who were in the way of advancing armies. Even with strict warnings against such behavior from officers on both sides, farms and homes were often pillaged. Soldiers stole grain, livestoc ...

Following the French and Indian War many colonists had grave reservations regarding Britain's decision to keep an army in America following and virtually all Americans were opposed to Parliament's effort to have them finance that army through taxation. Americans petitioned against the 1764 Sugar Act, which created an import tax, and the 1765 Stamp Act, which inflicted direct taxes on each piece of printed paper including legal documents, licenses, newspapers, playing cards, other publications, and ship's papers. What made the law so odious was not so much its direct cost, but the standard it was setting. The Americans contended that Parliament could not tax them, because they had no repr ...

America in the eighteenth century was a combination of contretemps, avarice, subordination, and contemptible barbarity. Geography, natural resources, and the hope for something better brought about a collision of cultures, among which were the French, Spanish, British, American settlers and Native Americans. In retrospection, we can see that the American Revolution began long before the shots rang out in 1775. In 1763, a different attitude emerged from the Americans. The hubris of the British led, indubitably, to friction. England, sending over British troops and expecting the colonists to subsidize their expense and allow the soldiers to live in American homes was a classic example of ...
