One thing progressives are very, very good at is omitting facts that they find to be too difficult to deal with. So it goes for all of the black heroes who fought alongside our Founding Fathers during the American Revolution. The progressives continual racial narrative is what it is.
I first learned of this book through Founders Fridays, because of the work of David Barton. After I read about 5 or 10 pages, I knew it needed to be made into an audiobook so that more people could consume it.
Progressives have controlled the universities, have controlled history; for over 100 years. If the progressives gave a damn about American History and this history specifically, they would have stopped cleansing their books of this content a long time ago. It is up to us conservatives to keep the memory of these people alive, these heroes, not just because of how it challenges the modern narrative, but primarily because it is simply the right thing to do. Nobody else has an interest in doing so.
Every aspect of the foundation and forming of America is one of the best examples of the decency that humanity has to offer.
Audiobook download here, it is in a YouTube playlist here. I know that not everybody is interested in audiobooks, so FWIW this book would make a great addition to your reading list. The text is in the public domain, the audiobook is in the public domain.
Is there an eText version?
Yep. The Democrats owned the slaves, and the Republicans freed them.
And after they were freed, the Democrats were the party of Jim Crow and the KKK.
That went all the way up to the time of Lyndon Johnson, who decided it was time to change the propaganda line, blame the Republicans for racism, and put blacks on the Democrat plantation where the taxpayers would pay them to be single parents, not get jobs, hate whitey, and vote Democrat.
That worked pretty well. Hollywood, the media, and the academics were delighted to lie their heads off in support.
Screw the blacks and make them vote for you. And screw the working taxpayers. And then go home with tons of money in your pockets.
There is a text version, here:
Here there is a Kindle and EPUB versions:
Not surprising, given that “Black (whitewashed) History Month” fails to note even ONE negative about “black history”
They are perfect people
I read a book called “Daughters of the Revolution” in college.
Boy, the Red Coats were notorious rapists.
Raped one woman tied down to a bed 17 times!!
They say that Mel Gibson move about the Revolution case the British in a bad light.
Actually, they were pretty darn bad during that war.
Of course it’s water under the bridge, but i was shocked
The shortest book ever written.
Calling them colored is a microaggression against the blacks...err...brothers...err...African Americans...err...negroes...err...
“I am a Republican, a black, dyed in the wool Republican, and I never intend to belong to any other party than the party of freedom and progress.” -Frederick Douglass
Downloading now and will burn to disk later, for driving listening.
Currently reading “The Barber of Natchez” an interesting book on antebellum colored life. Nothing like the current media fare.
There are older histories out there of the small towns of our nation that tell more about us as a people then do the history books of the progressives. One example: “History of Scituate, Mass, From Its First Settlement to 1831” by Samuel Deane. Page 314: “JAMES NEWELL, an African Slave of Mary White, 1690. Mary White had a farm in Conihassett, one mile west of Merritt’s brook, and she had the singular fancy to marry her slave. Tradition speaks of him as a respectable man. Their children, Joshua, James, Hezekiah, and four daughters, born from 1691 to 1706. James, Jr. married Abigail Nichols 1739, and left sons, James, Levi, Joshua and Daniel, born from 1740 to 1752. They have descendants in Scituate.” Having found this info, I was interested in what happened to their descendants, as we aren’t taught that this type of marriage existed back then. I discovered that two of their grandsons, married sisters, who would be my 6 or 7 times great aunts of English descent. They moved to and had descendants in N.H. and Maine. I am left wondering if their descendants identify as black or white? And if they identify as white do they know about their early black/Africn American ancestry?
Up North different and in the colonies, the condition of the mulatto child followed after the mother so they might have been classified as free at least. I know such marriages existed because I know a lot of history of interracial marriage and otherwise in the USA back in the day and while a lot of it was pretty bad (illegal for my parents to marry in at least sixteen states in the US till 1967) it’s not all 100% bad as certain people would have us believe. Most likely they didn’t know or “passed” and kept it a secret you can understand why.
My pleasure, thanks for posting it. It looks like a great resource, audiobooks are great to take on long drives.
