We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Related, "Ancient Military Drum Airs" are (in order): "Closing
the Long Roll", "Three Camps" (American Revolution), "The Downfall of
Paris" (War of 1812), and "Hell On the Wabash" (American Civil War).
Almost anybody except a confirmed metrosexual would willingly march into gunfire with good drumming. It can make a fellow feel like "It's a good day to die!" (It seems to be controversial about who said that first, but it's probably been spoken since the dawn of humanity.)
Here in Part 2 of the document, moral ambiguity seems to rear its ugly pretty heads. Did Samuel Adams ''set up'' the deaths of the eight Minutemen, in order to force the shots to be 'heard 'round the world'?
If so, was it the act of a great man? It'd be a good bet that, not according to the bereaved! Or would it?
The same question is the battlefield of the current 2A fight. And everywhere you look, really, all the way back to the Judgment of Solomon.
