Addicted to the Past--Prelude to Revolution


On this day in history, February 9, 1775, the English Parliament declares Massachusetts to be in a state of rebellion.  This was in reaction to the provincial congress that was held on February 1st, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, during which John Hancock and Joseph Warren began defensive preparations for a state of war.  The fight for our independence begins!
