Liberty’s Kids


I recently recommended this to the guy who turned me on to American history back in hi skool:

It’s an animated series about the American Revolution, as seen through the eyes of three kids — an Amer’kin, a Brit, and a Frenchie. My kid loves it, and so do I.

It does a great job of presenting the war from ALL sides — not just the mainstream American and British perspectives — and it doesn’t shy away from sneuflake-triggering issues such as slavery, the treatment of free blacks, and the oppression of civilians who remained loyal to the crown.

But it also paints a very noble picture of what the Patriots were trying to accomplish, even during such times when they clearly stray from those goals.

And the level of detail is astonishing. I highly, highly recommend. ❤️

FACEBOOK: Propriety



A proper English maid does not drop the tea service at the discovery of a corpse but instead sets it down upon the nearest and/or most carefully dusted armoire, thus freeing both hands towards the smoothing of her apron and loosening of her corset.  Once properly composed, she may then commence the screaming of bloody murder.

Her American counterpart is beholden to no such code; she’s not been bred for murder intrigue, lacks the proper undergarments, and is almost certainly getting paid by the hour.
