When you think of the American Revolution, what comes to mind? The war, George Washington, Redcoats and maybe even the Boston Tea Party and Declaration of Independence perhaps. These are all part of it but it is far more complex and super interesting and important. It’s more than just famous names and documents and battles, and in more ways than not, the American Revolution wasn’t just a war. If you went back to the period of the Revolution and you asked people their perspective, many of them would tell you that the war, the actual fighting, was only a minor part of the American Revolution.
We of course will be covering the famous and well known people, documents, and battles, but also there are many that aren’t known so those will be delved into. There are so many nuggets in our country’s founding, such as letters from soldiers and founding fathers, how many times and just how close we were to not winning independence from England, what George Washington really felt about slavery and the list goes on and on.
You will learn many things in a much different way than what was, or is currently, taught in schools. We will discuss sensitive topics such as God, slavery, free-speech and several other topics that aren’t discussed often as it might ruffle feathers or not be politically correct.
If you are looking for a simplistic and watered downed version of everything that helped form the best country in the world, this podcast is not for you. Our founding is an exciting and truly amazing journey, one that needs to be shared with all Americans and we hope you come alongside us during it.
