    The English, on the other hand, had over 60,000 under arms in 1779 alone - including 25,000 hired Hessians from Germany. In addition, until the addition of the French to the battles, the English had complete control of the east coastal cities via their uncontested navies (not included in the figures above). There were also an estimated 25,000 Loyalists who fought along side the British. http://www.americanrevolutionarywar.net/

    Damn facts are a pesky things, aren't they?

    I'm with the students on this one. Complete bs on the part of that school board. No curriculum should be biased or censored, just straight facts.


    Don't tell that to the religious right which wants to get the government off of Wall Street's back and into every American bedroom.

    You did enough to post to me about it this time and other times before. You cared enough to post probably thousands of times about your rather misguided perception of progressivism.

    Besides, it's not as if a self-described libertarian could fault the progressives for being awash in idealistic fantasies with any degree of seriousness.

    LOL --- drinking tonight?

    What about the 20,000 troops that were still stationed in the colonies after the French & Indian War? Probably shouldn't count them, huh? Probably shouldn't mention the build-up in 1774-76 either, in order to support the tax collectors, huh? Or, the ones used to guard the land grants given by the King to his favorite supporters, huh?

    Do yourself a favor ... take the time to actually study it.

    You do realize both the French and Indians fought on behalf of the revolutionaries?

    You know nothing about history...

    Despite what you were taught when you were 7 - the revolutionaries smoked the British.....
