America has a unique and inspiring history but our children are being systematically deprived of this cultural heritage.

The Left hates America because she was racist, classist, sexist and the aggressor. The country sucks, it should disappear. This passes for what our children are taught about the greatest nation in the history of the world.

I can't get enough of that story. Supposedly Washington met some of those Indians many years later, and they told him how special they thought he was. This is the first I heard that they stopped firing on him.

I had never heard that story before, So many improbable things happened to our countries founders and our nation itself that to believe that a Divine hand is not involved in the matters of man is either blindness or willing ignorance.

"An Indian chief named Red Hawk said he had shot at Washington eleven times and then ceased firing, convinced that the Great Spirit was protecting him. "

You betcha.

Misguided motives for politically correct education have cut a deadly swath through public school textbooks, resulting in less and less information about the Founders.

If anyone thinks this is accidental, look again at WHO AND WHAT is doing it. Another slimey tentacle of liberalism and socialism.

At the Battle of Princeton, New Jersey, January 3, 1777, as his troops were being driven back, early in the engagement, Washington on his white horse rode in front of his faltering troops to encourage them to hold firm. By doing this he put himself between his troops and the British who were less than 40 yards away.

The Britsh formed ranks and fired as did the Americans. Hundreds of muskets and rifles discharged with Washington riding between all of them. Gunsmoke obscured the scene and a Continental staff officer felt certain that Washington had been killed or wounded as it seemed impossible for anyone to escape unscathed.

A few moments later, Washington emerged upon his horse and rode to safety. Within minutes his forces regained their composure, advanced and defeated the British troops in their front.

The rest is history.

Great post!

The left would deprive us of our heroes and our common sense, if they were to have their way.
