Heroes come in many forms. That is true today and that was true during the American Revolution. Many times, their names and their contributions are not known. However, that doesn’t diminish the fact that they are still heroes. Today we look at the contributions of Plunket Fleeson, an individual few people have ever heard of. But, Plunket Fleeson built the tent used by George Washington to plan the war, to fight the battles, and to travel around the Colonies during the American Revolution. And the original tent still exists today and can be seen in the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia. So, we hope you enjoy learning about Plunket Fleeson in today’s episode of Revolutionary War Rarities. We are the podcast from the Sons of the American Revolution.

Support for Independence within the Colonies was far from unanimous. And this was boldly displayed on November 28, 1776 when the Declaration of Dependence was released and signed by many, many Loyalists from New York. The Declaration of Dependence called the American Revolution the most unnatural, unprovoked Rebellion, that ever disgraced the annuls of Time. Yep, the Declaration of Independence had a competitor and it told the opposite story of Mr. Jefferson’s parchment. We hope you enjoy today’s episode entitled “It Just Depends”. Thank you for being part of Revolutionary War Rarities. We are the podcast from The Sons Of The American Revolution.

The real value of learning history is to understand cause and effect. Afterall, understanding the reactions to an action taken can at least help us predict future reactions. The American Revolution had numerous causes. And each of those causes had very specific effects. Now, this episode is not intended to be a deep dive into all causes and all effects of the American Revolution as there is simply not enough time to do that. However, this should at least provide a good introduction into some things that happened well before the American Revolution that had a direct impact on it. So, we hope you enjoy “Cause and Effect” in this episode of Revolutionary War Rarities, the podcast from the Sons of the American Revolution.
