Hello Fellow Patriots!

Marquis de Lafayette was a French military hero and political leader who played a key role in both the American Revolution and the French Revolution.  Why would someone so rich and powerful leave it all to come fight in a war for a country he didn't even live in?  What were his contributions for America's independence?  How did he become so close and one of the trusted people in George Washington'...

Hello Fellow Patriots!

Today I talk about the First Continental Congress.  Who attended?  What did they talk about?  Why was this so important to the colonies and eventual independence?  What happened after they left?  What was the response from King George II and England?  Learn the answers to these questions and so much more, in this descriptive episode.  I had a difficult goal set for this podcast, that is, making a 6-week meeti...

Hello Fellow Patriots!

This show is being released on December 31, which is the time frame of the topic of today's show! 

Today I talk about the Crossing of the Delaware, who was there, how it was done and discuss the details often overlooked.  I discuss the 10-mile march to Trenton, what happened at the battles of Trenton and Princeton, and how these victories not only changed the morale and the trajectory of the Continental A...

Hello Fellow Patriots!

Ironically, this show is being released on December 16, which is the same date of the Boston Tea Party, 249 years ago.  

Who was behind the Tea Party?  How many people were involved?  Do we have actual names of anyone that participated?  Answers to these, and other questions about this event, are given.

The Boston Tea Party, and what England did afterwards, can be considered the pivotal point on the road to t...

Hello Fellow Patriots!

Welcome Patriots! In this Bonus Episode, I provide mini-bio's of three (3) remarkable women.  Often overlooked and rarely spoken about, women played an important role in the success of the Revolution and in this show, you'll learn about several of them.  Buckle up, some of what they did will not only surprise you, but inspire you as well.   TONS of amazing links (videos, books & more) for this sho...

Welcome Patriots!   In this episode I cover two important events that are rarely spoken about and not listed in most American Revolution timelines.  The Battle of Alamance took place over 2 hours in North Carolina, a year after the Boston Massacre.  An important battle for many reasons, we discuss all of them and more. Then, we move onto what many call the first naval battle of the Revolution, The Gaspee Affair.  This event illustr...

Welcome Patriots!  In this Bonus Episode, I share the amazing life of a successful tailor in New York, who became a spy for George Washington.  Most people had not heard his name until the Broadway Musical "Hamilton" came out, but it's time he gets recognized for what he did.  Not only did he help win the war, he literally saved George Washington from capture (or death) not once or twice, but three times!

Hello Fellow Patriots!

In this show I discuss what many call the "starting point" of the Revolution, that being The Boston Massacre.  Did it happen the way we learned in school?  Who was truly at fault?  After scouring court transcripts, actual documents from the lawyers and notes of the trial, witness statements and about 8 hours of research, I do my best to paint a vivid picture for you of what truly happened and why.

Hello Fellow Patriots!

Tensions have reached the point where a murder takes place, or was it self-defense?  In this show I discuss the Occupation of Boston, put the sheer number of soldiers into perspective, and then the tragic death of a young boy, Christopher Seider.  Who was involved, the outcomes and all that was encompassed is covered in this detailed account. 

Our next show will discuss the Boston Massacre.

Hello Fellow Patriots!

Things are reaching a point of no return and in this episode we talk about The Liberty Affair, or sometimes referred to as The Liberty Riots, and then of course when England confiscated The Liberty, a ship owned by John Hancock.

Tensions are at the max and my next show is going to cover the occupation of Boston and the Boston Massacre.

I hope you enjoy this very interesting bonus episode (my third), where we discuss John Dickinson.  John Dickinson was known as the "penman of the Revolution" as he was involved with writing and editing so many important documents.  He may be best known for the pamphlet he wrote, which was a series of 12 letters, which inspired colonists abroad to do something about the tyranny taking place.  The letters, and pamphlet, were ...

Hello Fellow Patriots!

It's hard to fathom that England continued, time and time again, to impose Acts (laws, taxes, show of power) on the colonists.  I understand that being in "control' of the colonies from 3,000 miles away was tough, but they continued to declare and enforce (or try to) Act after Act after Act.  We are at the point of the story where it's about to explode into violence.

In this show I cover some ...

I hope you enjoy our second bonus episode, just in time for Independence Day, where we discuss the Sons of Liberty.  You have likely heard about them, but who were they exactly?  When and how was it created?  Who were the original members?  What impact did they have on the formation of the United States?

In this episode we answer all of those questions and dive deep on one member in particular, John Hancock.

This show we discuss the Stamp Act Congress and learn about James Otis and his remarkable life and his contributions to our country and the Congress.

The Stamp Act Congress met in the Federal Hall building in New York City between October 7 and 25, 1765. It was the first colonial action against a British measure and was formed to protest the Stamp Act issued by British Parliament on March 1765.

The Seven Years' War, also known as the French and Indian War in the colonies, lasted from 1756 to 1763, forming a chapter in the imperial struggle between Britain and France.  Both were doing all they could to gain control of the Ohio Valley and add to their respective empire.

In the early 1750s, France’s expansion into the Ohio River valley repeatedly brought with it conflict in the British colonies, especially Virginia. In 1...
