On this day, in 1776 an insurgency began.
Think about it:
Tweet: The world’s largest empire at the time was categorically rejected by a country with almost no standing military,no domestic governmental structure and no hope of ever defeating the much larger empire.
The insurgency was formulated by men who had multiple goals and motivations (as do all men, at all times) but the ultimate mission of all of their goals was the establishing of a country founded in a set of principles.
The insurgency took over 200 years to become established as apple pie, Mom and, well…the flag.
Makes you wonder where all of the modern insurgencies going on now will end up in 200 years.
