King Prohibits Exportation of arms and ammunition to America.  Whitehall, Oct. 19, 1774

The Earl of Dartmouth to the Governours of the Colonies:

Sir: His Majesty having thought fit by his Order in Council this day to prohibit the exportation from Great Britain of Gunpowder, or any sort of Arms or Ammunition, I herewith enclose to you a copy of the Order; and it is his Majesty’s command that you do take the most effectual measures for arresting, detaining, and securing any Gunpowder , or any sort of Arms or Ammunition which may be attempted to be imported into the Province under your Government, unless the master of the ship having such Military Stores on board shall produce a license from his Majesty . . . .”

Quoted from: The Christian History of the American Revolution – Consider & Ponder // page 322 // by Verna M. Hall

Page 508: June 12th, 1775 – Governor Gage declared Martial Law

My take on what Mark Twain said ‘history doesn’t repeat itself, . . . but it rhymes’ – meaning of course that there is always a little twist, but it does seem as if it repeats, so look for it repeating itself – only this time, it’d be repealing the 2nd . . . . or maybe they’d come to the door first?

Watching closely, working to understand all I may, in this "Age of Information", even from my limited view, I can see much of what's going on ..... and I oft see it's going to impact all of us which is why I share it. My focus is to expose evil, and to serve my Lord and savior Jesus in whatever way He shows me. If one waits long enough, better writers will come along and comment; it's just that I have so little patience with the evil that lurks among us and I've wasted so much time and now, there is so little left! WELCOME!
