The brushfires of liberty and my passion for the founding of America began in my 7th grade history class. George Walsh was the teacher that brought American history and the events leading up to the revolution, battles and campaigns to life. He made us feel proud to be americans as we learned about the nation's founding, to the drafting of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
My father also loved history and took the family to many historic sites such as the homes of Benjamin Franklin and John Quincy Adams, to Abbott Hall and the portrait of Spirit of 76 and tours to Lexington and Concord. I remember Dad telling me that many of those patriots of the day stood against the mightiest force on earth at the time; the British Empire and defeated them with little resources. Each man had a determined love for liberty and his own gun.
In 1976, the approaching 200th anniversary of the bicentennial opened up many windows to commemorate historical events. The doctrines that those brave patriots lived by, were instilled in me as a youngster and became a permanent part of my understanding of who I am and what it meant to be an American patriot.
In the early 1990's, the encroachments on civil liberties became an obvious contradiction to the intentions of the founding principles of America. I began to ponder how I could revive those principals and see them restored to what they were meant to be. With the birth of the Tea Party Movement on April 15, 2009, the opportunity to restart the project became irresistible. In 2010, I invested in product, had the website reconstructed and built a custom made trailer promoting patriotism, which I take to rallies and events. My Goal is to grow and promote what I call the 76 project and to advance the cause of American liberty.
