Free--but reserve a seat:
Come hear the spellbinding stories of Lexington and Concord and the people who gave up so much so that we could have this great Republic. Jax Hunter of Revive 1775 will reintroduce you to The Rebel Alliance, the individuals who woke up on April 19, 1775 as British citizens and, if they made it to bed that night, were Traitors to the Crown.
We will explore the events of that day and meet the people who lived those events. Learn about their incredible bravery in the midst of great adversity. They are the most famous Rebel Alliance in all of History, and you are their heirs.
Why did these farmers, merchants and churchman confront the most powerful army in the world? What was so precious that they were willing to die for it?
According to militiaman Capt. Levi Preston it was not the Stamp Act, the Tea Act, or the treatises of John Locke. “No, sirree,” the captain countered. He had not seen any stamps, sipped any tea, or read anything other than the Bible, the catechism, and Watts’s Psalms. “What we meant in going for those Redcoats was this: we always had been free, and we meant to be always free. They didn’t mean we should.”
