Drag to set position!

“Who shall write the history of the American Revolution? Who can write it? Who will ever be able to write it?” wrote John Adams to Thomas Jefferson in 1815. Jefferson replied “Nobody, except merely its external facts. …The life and soul of history must be forever unknown.“

Let us never forget to remember the incredible sacrifices of those long ago Patriots of '76 (slide show).

In further remembrance of those who sacrificed for our liberty, and to educate the general public about them and their "shot heard 'round the world", some of the images in this pool will be blogged at Blogging the Revolution. Thank you. **UPDATE 2009 - I no longer publish Flickr photographs to this blog except my own and those in public domain. The copyright rules at Flickr have changed and I am not sure what they really mean nor how they work.
