Minority Myth and the Militia in the Revolutionary War!

Were the patriots who fought the original American Revolution really in the minority?


How did the Militia really figure in to the winning of that American Revolution?

What pattern should the Freedom fighters of today follow?

Was the American Revolution "Revolutionary"?

How did the "Minority Mythe" get started?

Are freedom loving people in America in the minority today or in the vast majority?

Those who refuse to learn from history are condemned to repeat it!

“The revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people and in the union of the colonies, both of which were accomplished before hostilities began.”

—John Adams[1]

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE are now in the midst of a great celebration of the Bicentennial of the American Revolution. It is tragic that this celebration is giving added emphasis in the mind of the general public to at least one myth which a few historians have tried without apparently great success to lay to rest. That failure says much about the present state of the academy in this country and the virtual breakdown of communications within and between important segments of the society.
