Please allow me a small correction:
"The regulars are out! The regulars are out!"
You see, at this point in history, we were all still British. Although less and less of us were pleased about that fact.
Not because it was so terrible to be British. It's just that a British citizen in GB and a British citizen in the colonies were two very different things. Taxation without representation, ...... but I digress. Yes MPK, April 19 is right around the corner, and if I could do one of those wonderful little animated smilies that TwT is famous for, carrying an American flag, I would! :D
I am very grateful that, of all the places on the face of this vast beautiful earth I could have been born, I was born right here! :!: :!: :!:
