Three Percenters History
April 19, 1775
Under supposed secret orders, 700 British regulars were given orders to destroy colonial and rebel supplies in Concord Massachusetts. An Intelligence network led by the sons of Liberty Infiltrated and were able to move the supplies long before the British advance. As a British forces were advancing the Patriot militia understood an engagement with the British military was imminent.
The first shots were fired just after dawn in Lexington, Massachusetts on the morning of April 19th, “The Shot Heard Round the World.” The colonial Militia were a band of 500 men who were outnumbered and initially forced to retreat. The British army was able to press forward to Concord, where they searched for the supplies only to come up empty handed.
While the British were searching for the missing supplies, the American militia were able to re-form to confront the enemy at the North Bridge. This time they were successful in driving back the British forces. More American reinforcements arrived and they forced the British army south to Boston. The militias blockaded the narrow land accesses to Charlestown and Boston which started the Siege of Boston.
The American War for Independence was now in full swing.
So, now you ask yourself, why the history lesson on a three percenter website. How is a chilly morning in April 1775 relevant to me or the cause today? This fight is almost identical today as is was 240 years ago. Tyranny is just that, tyranny. No matter if it comes from a crown three thousand miles away or from a desk in an oval office in DC. It is the principal of what is being done that makes the three percent active today. It has become blatant that there are two absolute principals that are engraved in this nation. The first is that Tyranny has conquered the political system. The second is that we will not stand for it. April 1775 is more pertinent now than you can imagine. Three percent of the non military colonials fought and won this nation from the most powerful nation in the world at the time. The three percent can now restore it.
It starts not here on this website, not at any rally, and not at the voting booth. It starts in your head. You have to live by the basic principal’s of the cause. Most important, you have to believe. If patriots do not believe, the fight is in vain. On this website, you will find much information to tell you who we are, what we are about, and the impact we make every single day. When you are ready, take the oath to defend the constitution. That simple. No money. No membership card. Only a way of life and a commitment to action.
