This is one of my favorite miniseries, Here are a few clips from it that are relevant for this weekend, culminating in the scene where they vote. The actual vote took place 245 years ago today, July 2nd.

Being we are two days from Independence Day, I would also highly recommend Rick Atkinson’s new book, The British are Coming.

It is the first installment of his Revolution Trilogy and it is an AWESOME read.

Atkinson is one of my favorite military historians; his relaxed, narrative style makes history enjoyable! If you have not read his World War Two Liberation Trilogy, do yourself a favor and get it today!
