Contents: They cry out for home --
Whipped like an animal --
The men wee so panic struck --
I believe liberty is the slave's right --
We are not bound to yield obedience --
Seventeen hundred Levellers with firearms --
Nothing can eradicate the seeds of liberty --
A Tea Party --
You damned rebels --
Against great odds --
A town under siege --
Did Polly set the sponge for the bread? --
I believe this year will decide the fate of America --
'Tis time to part --
Remember the ladies! --
We hold these truths --
A fortunate retreat --
We pounced upon the Hessians like an eagle --
My brave fellows, your country is at stake --
We cannot kill our fellowmen --
Turning point --
The times that try men's souls --
Death ceased to terrify --
Black bravery --
War in Indian country --
Death is a daily visitor --
I'm not afraid of the cannonballs --
They are crying for quarter! --
It was a mutiny --
The people have become savage --
The true sovereign --
Be bold and daring --
We beamed with joy --
Never a good war or a bad peace --
A band of brothers --
This country has so many charms --
We, the people of the United States --
A Bill of Rights.
