You will learn many things in a much different way than what was, or is, taught in school. We discuss sensitive topics such as God, slavery, free-speech and other topics that aren't usually discussed, in an adult manner with tact.

Ron's 5th Great-Grandfater fought in the revolution out of Pennsylvania. I hope you take this a ...

Hello Fellow Patriots! It's hard to fathom that England continued, time and time again, to impose Acts (laws, taxes, show of power) on the colonists. I understand that being in "control' of the colonies from 3,000 miles away was tough, but they continued to declare and enforce (or try to) Act after Act after Act. We are at the point of the story wh…
