American Spring: Lexington, Concord and the Road to Revolution
« on: February 26, 2019, 02:16:33 AM »
Caught this the night before I attended IBC. I stopped listening because I was midway through part 3 and wanted to hear from the beginning.  Most will be old hat for the folks here, but there is some insight into Gage, which parallels something Steel Thunder said.

There is also an interesting point about the collapse of command.

The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.

We seek not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

"Posterity! You will never know, how much it cost the present Generation, to preserve your Freedom! I hope you will make a good Use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven, that I ever took half the Pains to preserve it." - John Adams in a letter to Abigail, 26 April 1777

Great book that I highly recommend.  Nice to have the audio version now.  O0
The hardest distance to shoot is the six inches between your ears.  It gets easier when you get out of your own way.  Self doubt and negative self talk have no place on the firing line.  Once a shot is gone... good or bad, it is gone.   Focus on the next one. Make forty good first shots.
