The Line In The Sand, They’re Coming For Our Firearms! (pt.2)
January 15, 2013 in Activism
In light of the fact that the Department of Homeland Security, an Executive Branch Department of dubious Constitutionality at best, has purchased 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition at tax payer expense, why…?… Millions are hollow point rounds in 40 S&W, 9mm, 5.56x45mm and 7.62x51mm NATO. These cannot be for war, these are illegal under the Geneva Convention against a foreign foe. The answer is this — these non military rounds can only be used legally in law enforcement inside this country.
And that isn’t all, this ammo order contains millions of sniper rounds in .308 Win, .30-06 and .50 BMG… as well as millions more of 12, 16, and 20 gauge shotgun rounds in “double ought” buck and solid slug. This huge ammunition order when factored into the population of our country, is enough lead to “plug” every man, woman, and child in America over 5 times…
The globalists will stage more false-flag shootings at schools, malls, and other “victim disarmament zones” in order to demonize gun owners, Constitution loving 2nd Amendment Patriots, and returning veterans. This is not speculation, the DHS plan was leaked in 2009 in the now famous MIAC report.
We must get in their face. We must flaunt our history before these authoritarian goons. Our history as the Righteously Armed Culture we truly are. Time for us all to resume celebration of “April 19th as Patriots Day” (everyday), like we used to decades ago. Not as the anniversary of two rogue government false-flags. In fact, it is April 19th 1775 we celebrate. The anniversary of the birth of AMERICA. The day the American Revolution erupted. The birth day of Liberty against the abject slavery of tyranny. The day when Lexington and Concord became “The shot heard ’round the world,” that proved an Armed and Free People will not be cowed.
“[Righteous] People and nations are
Now to continue with part 2 of the Lexington and Concord story…
Patriot Paul Revere never completed his midnight ride. After reaching Lexington just after midnight on April 19th, he was joined by fellow Bostonian, William Dawes. Dawes taking a different route had arrived at the Lexington’s Hancock-Clarke House, about 30 minutes after Revere. At 1:00am, on tired horses they loped on to warn the residents of Concord. From the town of Lincoln, they were joined by Dr. Samuel Prescott who’s horse was fresh and raring to go.
At 1:30 am the three riders came upon and attempted to evade a British patrol. Revere was captured. Prescott’s steed at full gallop, hurtled a stone wall and made it to Concord in less than half an hour. The Redcoats had no chance of catching him.
The crafty Dawes, who had artfully talked his way past a British checkpoint earlier when leaving Boston, knew his horse was too weary to outrun the two British officers hot on his tail, so he staged a clever ruse. He rode up to a farmhouse and shouted, “Halloo, boys, I’ve got two of ‘em!” Fearing a trap, the Redcoats pulled up, turned tail, and galloped the other way fearing the “ambush” they believed they had just narrowly averted.
For the families of Lexington as dawn broke, the toll of the battle was unthinkable. Eight men lay dead and 10 were wounded. The surviving Minutemen, bent on revenge, shouldered their muskets and rifles, and under Captain John Parker’s command, set off toward Concord to vent their anger and grief in British blood.
When the British reached Concord, their search of the town and surrounding farms for “rebel” arms turned up 3 cannon, several dozen barrels of flour-salted provisions, and 550 pounds of assorted shot and musket balls. Many of the small arms were buried, hidden earlier in the furrows of the freshly planted fields. Powder, flints, most of the small arms, and cannon had been moved north through Acton to Chelmsford and south to Worchester a day or two before.
Near Barrett’s Farm, a mile and a half north of Concord where the Cannon and flour provisions were found, about a hundred Redcoats had secured and were guarding the North Bridge. On the hill above them a growing force of angry Minutemen was gathering. This militia was being steadily reenforced from the neighboring towns of Chelmsford, Lincoln, Acton, and Bedford.
The militia numbered about 400 men, yet made no move. Then they saw smoke billowing from Concord. The British were burning 3 gun carriages they had found when an outbuilding caught fire, but the militiamen thought it was their homes and businesses burning. They quickly formed ranks and advanced on the North Bridge.
Minuteman Amos Barrett reported: “We were within 15 rods of the redcoats when they began firing… I could see the balls striking in the river to the right of me; their balls whistled well.” Then, militia Major John Buttrick shouted; “Fire! For God’s sake, fellow soldiers, fire!” And fire they did.
Two militiaman were killed instantly one was renowned Acton gunsmith and rifleman Capt. Isaac Davis, 4 others were wounded in the exchange yet the men kept firing as they advanced… four British officers were hit and fell wounded. Three enlisted men fell dead… The Kings troops, seeing their officers fall, pulled back then began to flee toward Concord. They hoped to rejoin the main force under the protection of Lieutenant-Colonel Francis Smith.
Expecting a long overdue relief column, Smith ordered what he called a tactical withdrawal back toward Boston once the stragglers from the North Bridge action began pouring in. To the pursuing Americans it looked like a retreat, so using a short cut the militia reached the crossing at Merriam’s Corner a mile or so east of Concord ahead of the British troops. Taking cover behind trees, fences and walls they waited for their quarry to march past.
The Merriam’s Corner crossing is a narrow bridge. The Redcoat column had to stop, dress its line, and close ranks to three soldiers abreast to make it across. As the last of the column marched over the bridge, the militia stood and fired a devastating volley. The Redcoats not hit, turned and returned the volley, but the Americans stood fast and returned the fire once more. Two Redcoats were killed and six wounded. Not one patriot was scratched.
A mile past the Merriam’s crossing nearly 500 militiamen from Chelmsford had assembled in the woods at Brooks Hill. Smith’s leading forces charged the hill to “drive off the rabble.” so the main force could pass but the colonists didn’t budge. Rather, the Minutemen inflicted heavy casualties on the advanced force of the retreating invaders.
Again reforming. the Redcoats approached the border of the Lincoln and Lexington townships, their casualties were already almost 20%, being exacerbated by the persistent militia long-rifle sniping. The British were exhausted and almost out of ammunition. On the Lexington side, Captain Parker’s Lexington Militia, some wearing bandages from their encounter earlier that day, waited in hiding. They waited their ambush until Colonel Smith was in range then fired. Smith was wounded in the thigh as the entire British column stopped to engage the Patriots in what is now known as “Parker’s Revenge.” Major Pitcairn dispatching light infantry to clear the hill of the snipers, fell from his horse, which was injured by a shot. Unhorsed and with Smith wounded the exhausted Redcoats broke formation and ran forward to their own determent. Many surrendered. This so-called “withdrawal” had turned into a rout.
During the first 5 miles of the retreat the British were faced with militias that fought them in large ordered formations, using short range muskets and shotguns. This happened at least a half dozen times. Always supplemented by long-rifles from behind trees and fences sniping in the distance.
As British Lieutenant John Barker describes it… “Before we’d gone a half a mile, we were fired on from all sides. The country was full of woods, which the rebels did not fail to take advantage of. They were all lined with people who kept an incessant fire upon us … their numbers increased from all parts, while ours were reduced by deaths, wounds, and fatigue.”
Exhausted and out of ammunition After about 5 miles at the Lexington junction the redcoats finally saw their salvation. Lord Hugh Percy’s relief column of a thousand men arrived. Smith and Pitcarn’s men rested an hour protected by Percy’s cannon before they resumed their withdrawal. As many as 3000 militia now lined the road. The Redcoats faced a 15 mile long crossfire gauntlet back to Boston. Yet their number was now almost 1500, refreshed and with ammo to spare they returned fire for fire maintaining formation under the hail of Patriot bullets.
It evolved into a great myth that the Kings troops were just marched along like a long unresponsive formation begging to be shot at. They didn’t have any choice. The minute they would break or run, they’d be individual targets and all military capacity is lost. It was their only tactical advantage to occasionally stop and fire a huge volley to disperse the crowds of shooters. their casualties were kept at a minimum by this firing formation under the orders of what remained of their officers.
At sundown The redcoats reached safety near Boston. More than 270 of the King’s troops were dead, wounded, or missing. The Patriots had lost less than 40 killed with an equal number wounded and missing. The country could never be the same after the battles of Lexington and Concord. Riders rushed from one settlement to another, sounding the alarm, and spreading the news. Within a day 20,000 armed militiamen from the surrounding towns, marched toward Boston to lay siege. The American War for Independence, The Revolution against the global Empire, was enjoined.
