Remembering the Start of a Revolution

A depiction of the battle at Concord
July 4th, 1776 is hands down the most famous day in American history; the day that the Continental Congress declared independence from their mother nation of Great Britain. However, the American Revolutionary War was already in full swing by the time independence had been declared. This Sunday, April 19th will mark the 240th year anniversary of the Battles of Lexington & Concord which marked the first engagement of troops between the British and the Colonists in the American Revolution. While remembering and celebrating the birthdate of our nation is of paramount importance to the patriotic American, as a keen lover of history, I find what leads up to the declaration of independence of equal importance.

On April 18th, the British soldiers in Boston were ordered to march to Concord, locate militia ammunition stores, and destroy them. Even before the United States had formed, the idea of being disarmed didn't sit well with the colonists, a sentiment that has echoed throughout history with mantras such as "Don't Tread on Me" and "Come & Take It". Militia gathered throughout the area to counteract the British, first by the dozens, then by the hundreds, by the next day thousands of militiamen had surrounded Boston after the battles of Lexington & Concord. The infamous “shot heard round the world” cannot be attributed to any one man, as accounts of where the first shot came from vary. Perhaps though, who fired the first shot is unimportant because the message of that shot was clear, the British Colonies in America were ready to be free.

It is often forgotten that many colonists opposed an open revolution and up until the battle of Lexington & Concord, many patriots and founding fathers felt that their grievances with British rule were more than a political disagreement with their parent nation. However, after the events of April 19th, 1775 it was evident that a diplomatic resolution was not likely and that the birth of a new nation was imminent.

The Greatest Bag to Roll the Earth

Black Item 20055
Rothco released the 2015 Spring Supplement and one of the items featured on Page 10 is our new Wheeled Canvas Backpack .

Recently I attended a few trade shows and decided to try out this new bag. This bag is now my constant companion on every trip and has even replaced my everyday lap top bag. This bag is the perfect bag for travel or day-to-day use, and perfect for airplane carry-on.

This bag has 3 main compartments.
The large main compartment has a padded laptop compartment that has an elastic strap to secure your laptop and it will hold a 17” laptop.
The middle compartment has 2 compartments that are separated by a sleeve.
The front compartment has 6 separate compartments, perfect for keeping it organized.
Green Item 20057
The front of the bag also has two front zippers compartments, and 5 attachments loops. 2 expandable side pouches with zippers. 2 quick release buckles and 2 cinch straps, making it expandable.

The back of the bag has a padded back panel and padded shoulder straps, for when you want to carry it on your back and along with hideaway pockets for the straps, for when you don’t. It has a push button telescoping aluminum rod with a plastic handle for when you want a roll bag. Also has a padded top carry handle for when you need to hold.

Khaki Item 20056
Having 1 bag with options to carry on your back, roll when you don’t and carry in your hand is AMAZING.

This bag rolls smoothly without any noise, and the bag will not tip over when it's top heavy, it has a bar and two pegs to prevent that. The bag is expandable and has been filled to CAPACITY and fit right into the overhead bin. Size is 23” x 13” x 7 ½” and available in Black, Khaki and Green.
