July 4th . Last Best Hope for Freedom

On July 4th, 2002, the Pentagon published an Independence Day message from the Chairman - Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Richard Myers:

“When our founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776, they mutually pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to each other and to the world. During the course of the seven-year war that followed, nine of the signers died of wounds or hardships, 17 lost everything that they owned, and five were imprisoned or captured. They risked all they had, sacrificing everything for freedom -- they all kept their sacred honor.”

Constitution of the United States

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

The Preamble, with its conclusion that this Constitution was established for ourselves and our Posterity, underscored that, unlike the constitutions in Great Britain and elsewhere at the time of the founding, the American Constitution was a written and permanent document.

The strongest military force in the world was coming to crush their rebellion. Read More

  • By mid-August Washington's army of only a little over 10,000 militiamen and a virtually nonexistent patriot navy, found themselves facing a fleet of seventy British warships and over 32,000 troops.

  • By mid-September the British had occupied all of New York City, with Washington's army fleeing north of the city.
  • A year later, the British army marched unopposed into Philadelphia, occupying the city.
  • America's citizens, their political leaders, and a beleaguered continental army were realizing just how daunting their commitment of their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor was."
