Supporting the Cause

Jonas is an exchange student from Germany who attends Rockport High. He came out in full colonial garb to participate in reading of the Declaration of Independence!!
So.....there were men living in the 13 Original Colonies who only had pitchforks to defend themselves from the British soldiers in the 1770's. You know the story......many new residents of America wanted to start a new country and not be citizens of England because the king wasn't treating them fairly. Thus, a war ensued, we won, and now we have picnics and fireworks every 4th of July to celebrate our freedom.
