As much as I recognize many systemic issues with the country I live in (USA). I'm appreciating all the people who died fighting for independence from British rule and making a name for themselves!! 

 

It blows my mind that real people with families and individual interests decided to risk it all by fighting the British. Can you imagine being ruled by a powerful kingdom and then banding together with your friends and fighting back?! I'd shit my pants. 

 

Thanks to all those brave fellows. 🙏

Not so fun fact, just about the same number of American soldiers killed in action in the war on terror was the same amount as in the revolutionary war, more died from the revolutionary war due to poor medical care though.

Oh wow, and the whole "war on terror" stuff was so senseless in my opinion 😞

Revolutionary war was over taxes, the British wanted to pay for defense in the colonies against the natives and French, and the poor people that actually did the fighting were far more self sufficient(nothing bought to tax really) than any American today...

That's fine.
