The Three Strikes of the Match


The Story that is told at a LibertySeed is that of The Three Strikes.

Why Three Strikes?

The reason the story is called the Three Strikes is because the colonist in the 1700's were actually a peaceful lot. The colonist certainly did not want a war, nobody in their right mind wants a war. It took more than a little prodding from King George to spark the flames of war and sufficiently rile the colonist to take up arms.

So was it the taxes that so provoked our forefathers to take such a drastic action as to initiate a War against the Crown?

Or was it the Intolerable Acts? It most certainly wasn't the Tea Tax was it? Nobody in their right mind would go to war over such a trivial thing as a Tax on Tea would they? Certainly not!

The Volunteers at the RWVA would be more than happy to tell the story of the birth of our Nation.

The RWVA is a 501c3 Non-Profit oganization. The RWVA is apolitical - we believe that the idea of Liberty and Freedom transcends party lines and as such we do not promote either the Democratic or the Republican party.

The bottom line is that we believe that all Americans value Liberty regardless of political paradigms. Our Country, America, was, and is, unique in that in the beginnings of this country Liberty was valued over all other things.

We proudly present the Story of the Three Strikes:

The First Strike - The Shot Heard around the World

The Second Strike - Concord and the North Bridge

The Third Strike - A Corner in the Road

Samuel Adams

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace.

We seek not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

Levi Preston

Young man, what we meant in going for those Redcoats was this: we always had governed ourselves and we always meant to. They didn't mean we should.

Captain Levi Preston of Danvers, Massachusetts, interviewed about his participation in the first battle of the American Revolution many years later, at the age of 91 (around 1843)
