    This is really great!!!!!!!

    Can’t believe this was done by a teenager!!
    There is a huge rock near a gravel pit on Hwy.25 in rural Iowa.
    For generations, kids have painted slogans, names, and obscenities on this rock, changing its character many times. A few months back, the rock received its latest paint job, and since then it has been left completely undisturbed.

    It’s quite an impressive sight. Be sure to scroll down and check out the multiple photos. (all angles) of the rock.

    I thought the flag was draped over the rock, but it’s not. It’s actually painted on the rock too.

  2. Hi,
    I am 16, a Christian, a Republican, a Home schooler, and I love this blog!!!! I love that you added posts about Crispus Attucks and Nathan Hale, because they’re not always taught about in schools where I live; the only way any of my public schooled friends know about Nathan Hale is by my telling them about him! I do have a suggestion for your American Women posts…Deborah Sampson, the first women to ever recive an honorary discharge from the army, and State Heorine of MA. I think you might enjoy her story; she was a strong young woman who “bristled at the idea that women were somehow inferior to men”

    I agree with you on the negative bias on American history completely. There is such a negative bias on American loyalists and they get shoved to a cute little footnote at the bottom of the chapter on the American Revolution, which is completely unjust. All of America should be studied in American history, not just the victorious aspect of it. I began reenacting as a loyalist provincial soldier (and lady) a few years ago, and studying the American Revolution from the loyalist point of view is such a refreshing view on a subject I thought I knew so much about. There’s just so much that goes on in this time period and your website is a fun and helpful guide for the Patriot side. I would love to see this website grow as you learn more. 🙂
