On October 19, 1781, as the redcoats under British General Charles Cornwallis marched forward to surrender, they could not help but notice how poorly dressed and equipped George Washington’s troops were. Few had uniforms. Many wore rags and went barefooted. “Out of this rabble has risen a people who defy kings,” one of King George’s soldiers observed.
— Bill Bennett, from The American Patriot’s Almanac
On November 6th next, out of this rabble I hope will arise a people to defy America’s current would-be King Barack H. Obama.
