5.0 out of 5 stars Quite Extraordinary — Color Jumps Off Page and Grabs You By the Throat — an Eye Opener in Every Way,

I received a copy of the color version from the author and totally recommend the color version over the black and white version. Amazon has really got the color production line perfected, and color in this book adds a third dimension that is missing from the less expensive but much blander black and white version. I cannot over-state this: the color as planned by the author and executed by Amazon jumps off the page and grabs you by the throat. This is a phenomenal multi-dimensional book, a deep study in cultural linquistics and symbology, and I suspect it will become a classroom and presidential campaign planning staple.

The People’s Army – the Continental Army rooted in home-spun militias – was formed and fought and won a war before the U.S. Constitution was written and signed in 1787. The Constitution – and the Republic – exist because the People’s Army, the Continental Army led by George Washington – leveraged the twin advantages of a righteous cause and home court to eject what was then the greatest imperial power on the planet. Of the 55 men attending the Constitutional Convention, at least 29 served in the Continental Army, most of them in positions of command. Understanding the relationship between the people from whom the early militias were drawn, the Army, and the Constitution, is essential to evaluating where we fall short today.

This book explains the unsavory fine points of our national identity by probing and then exposing the not so well hidden loose ends that tie the bottom half of America’s social hierarchy to the top half. It reveals that there is much much more to race and class than what we see at eye level. We learn here that the colonists who came to the Americas were very much a mixed bag.
