Untold Truths About the American Revolution

The article I want to share with you, "Untold Truths About the American Revolution" , is by Howard Zinn.

I cannot possibly begin to do it justice with an excerpt.

Please just go read the whole piece. It is short. Very nearly perfectly written. And, oh, so very sobering.

    I am so disillusioned with our country and it's violence, both historically and recently, that I am just about ready to move to
    Canada. Things do not appear to be getting any better.

  2. I loudly proclaimed I would move to Canada if Reagan were elected. Well, I didn't. Still here. But I appreciate Zinn's sobering reminder. Good to think about as I write of a fictional war in a fantasy world. Vital to think about as our nation actually wages wars.
