Va Flaggers: Celebrate Independence Day by Honoring ALL American Patriots by Susan Hathaway

"I do affirm, in the presence of God, that I renounce and refuse all allegiance to the King of Great Britain, his heirs and accessions, and that I will be faithful to bear true allegiance to the Commonwealth of Virginia as a free and independent state ..." ~ from the Amelia Court House Oath of Allegiance to the Commonwealth and the USA, signed by 124 men on August 23, 1777

Funny how we consider these men Patriots, and yet those who exercised the same right and swore a similar oath in 1861 are now deemed "traitors" by ignorant and self-serving Americans.  

God bless America...and God bless those who have the courage to stand in the face of tyranny...whether it be in 1776...1861...or 2013!
