New audiobook release: The Capture of Fort William and Mary

We have an amendment, the Second Amendment, because in part when the colonists had no say in how their own societies should be run and what they wanted most was self-government, Britain though it a good idea to confiscate. Mostly the confiscation centered around gunpowder, but there were along with it plots and schemes to take away actual weapons such as guns and cannons.

Today we have the story of The Capture of Fort William and Mary, which details a unique and fun chapter in pre-U.S. history in which the colonists said we are going to disarm you before you disarm us.

It's a short work, coming in at just over 1 hour total recording time for the entire book. Its more like a pamphlet, really. But it does highlight a distinct truth. Americans are fearful of weapons regulation by government because it has always led to (or coincided with) a domineering government, and that includes right here in our own country's unique and amazing history.

I hope everyone will take a listen. This story is not nearly as well-known as it need be, but now it is powered by its own audio book. I'm looking forward to listening to it too.
