Season 2, Episode5, ”Cato, A Tragedy”

Would you believe that George William Frederick, the future King George III, was an actor in a play that focused on independent liberty -vs- tyranny?  Joseph Addison wrote a play in 1712 about the mortal enemy of Julius Caesar entitled “Cato, A Tragedy”.  Cato was a Roman Senator and was considered the last man standing when Rome’s Republic fell.  The play focused on independent liberty -vs- government, tyranny, and other things that would heavily influence our Founding Fathers.  This weeks episode of Revolutionary War Rarities reveals to our listeners the impact that “Cato, A Tragedy” had on some of the big names of our revolution.  So, make sure and watch or listen to this episode and thank you for being a part of Revolutionary War Rarities, the Podcast from The Sons of the American Revolution.
