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.

Do you remember the line from “National Treasure”, “The legend writ, the stain affected, the key in silence undetected, fifty-five in iron pen, Mr. Matlack can’t offend”? “National Treasure” was a wonderful historical fiction movie, but Mr. Matlack was not fiction. He actually existed and played a major role in the American Revolution. Mr. Matlack was Timothy Matlack. He often went by the pen name “Tiberius Gracchus” and that is who this episode of Revolutionary War Rarities is about. So, we hope you enjoy Season 2, Episode 6 of Revolutionary War Rarities entitled “Tiberius Gracchus. This is the Podcast from The Sons Of The American Revolution.

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.

Our nations history has not always been something that we can look back on with great pride. But, it is critical to understand all of our history so that we can learn from our past. The Rhode Island 1st was an officially integrated regiment that fought valiantly in the American Revolution. The world would not witness another officially integrated regiment until well into the 20th century. And the non-integration of American troops would not be eliminated until an Executive Order from President Truman.
We hope you enjoy the story of the Rhode Island 1st and learn about the valiant fighting of this incredible group of men.
