Today we commemorate the lighting of the torch of liberty in the United States of America.

Professor Paul details the history of the Battles of Lexington and Concord and reminds us how the lessons of the past apply to us today. Liberty, like light, is a result of the positive application of energy.

During our Quiet Time moment from SilencerShop.com, the Professor has more recommended reading.

If you truly wish to understand the origins of the world conflict with the 7th Century death cult of Islam, we have a book for you to consider.

Paul Revere’s Ride by David Hackett Fischer: Amazon.com

 Paul Revere’s midnight ride looms as an almost mythical event in American history–yet it has been largely ignored by scholars and left to patriotic writers and debunkers. Now one of the foremost American historians offers the first serious look at the events of the night of April 18, 1775–what led up to it, what really happened, and what followed–uncovering a truth far more remarkable than the myths of tradition.

 In Paul Revere’s Ride, David Hackett Fischer fashions an exciting narrative that offers deep insight into the outbreak of revolution and the emergence of the American republic. Beginning in the years before the eruption of war, Fischer illuminates the figure of Paul Revere, a man far more complex than the simple artisan and messenger of tradition.
