Inspiration

In the American Colonial/Revolutionary era, men did great things. The differences of contemporary man and the Colonial/Revolutionary man is stark. This group seeks to explore the characters of that era to recover the lost lessons of the manliness of our forefathers.

respect for your fellow man is important in day to day dealings in a civilized society. unfortunately for today a lot of it is missing in todays society. thanks for starting this group.

Where has civility gone in modern society? In former eras such as those our founding fathers lived in, there was no lack of contention among people. But even when two men disagreed, they did so respectfully and with courtesy to each other. For example, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson were staunch political opponents - and yet maintained a deep friendship in spite of their differences. 

 

The simple fact our modern society completely disregards is this: it doesn't cost anything to be kind.
