Nice job, HamGun!  I'm looking forward to the next 2.

I LOVE this stuff!

"Perhaps you and I have lived with this miracle too long to be properly appreciative. Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again."  Ronald Reagan


Thank you ITB , OmegaBurn , Rangerat67 and, JustKim.  I'm really glad you enjoyed it.




Watched with my son. He enjoyed it! Looking forward to the next installments.

   O.K I would love fore you to.


The Second Strike did not disappoint.  Well done.  I wish I had some of that creativity.  Keep up the great work.  Activities like this help increase the audience for our message.  Huzzah!
"That gallant officer is General Fraser. I admire him, but it is necessary that he should die. Do your duty."  - Morgan's orders to Timothy Murphy at the Second Battle of Saratoga 1777, Oct 7

Our cause is just . . . our country will be grateful - George Rogers Clark

"This country has been made by the Timothy Murphys, the men in the ranks. Conditions here called for qualities of heart and hand that Tim Murphy had in abundance. Our histories should tell us more about the men in the ranks, for it was to them, more than to the generals that we were indebted for our military victories." -  Franklin Delano Roosevelt, as New York Governor, 1929, at the dedication of the memorial to Murphy


The details are great:  the 'running' water under the bridge, the cotton ball musket smoke - nice job

Charles McKinley

Last evening, it occurred to me that when a defender of Liberty is called home, their load lands upon the shoulders of the defenders left behind. Just as the Founders did their duty for Liberty, every subsequent generation must continue their work lest Liberty perish. As there is no way for the remaining adults to take on the work of those that die, we must pass the ideals and duties on to the children. -PHenery

the First Strike will go live on Facebook and Instagram at 6pm Central, Today.    :pop:
