    I am now reading a book about Paul Revere. Just started it actually and it seems very good. It seems to have a lot about the grass roots start of the American Revolution. So far there has been a lot of interesting things such as how the British common soldier was treated by his own commanders. Not very well. I can see why they really didn't care.

    Pretty good read.
    Is it solipsistic in here, or is it just me?
