Remembering V-E Day

May 8th, 2015 marks the 70th Anniversary of the end of the Second World War in Europe. The day, which is known as VE Day or Victory in Europe day, marked the formal acceptance of Nazi Germany's Armed Forces surrender. This historic event was marked with celebration throughout the world. 

Today as I looked through the articles and newspapers covering this historic event, I was overwhelmed with images of celebration and excitement. It was a truly amazing time that was captured with some of the most iconic images of the past century. From the crowds in London that gathered around to see Winston Churchill declare the war with Germany was over; to the streets of New York City as the crowds amassed in Time Square to celebrate. They say a picture is worth a thousand words but I say these pictures represent just one word...VICTORY.

The Origins of "Come and Take It"

Today, the phrase "Come and Take It" is commonly used in support of the second amendment. The meaning behind the phrase is that if you want something that is mine, you'll have to take it from me because I will not give it up freely. Over the past few years, this sentiment has seen a revival and because of this modern day popularity, Rothco carries several items with the "Come and Take It" mantra. However, the historical relevance of this phrase can be traced back nearly two and a half millennia to ancient Greece.

Prior to the Battle of Thermopylae, the Greek forces were ordered by the Persian King, Xerxes, to surrender their weapons, to which the Greek's replied "Molon Labe" which translates to "Come and Take Them". While many today may utter these words as a challenge or dare, coming from the ancient Greek's this proclamation was not much of a threat, as their forces were overwhelmingly outnumber, but a declaration that they would rather die as freemen defending their rights and their country than live under the yolk of an oppressor.

The sentiment of Molon Labe has echoed throughout history; during the American Revolutionary War, the "Don't Tread on Me" mantra was very popular (in fact, it still is) and during the Texas Revolution, the Texans raised what is called the Gonzales flag in their war against Mexico when Mexican authorities attempted to take away their cannon. With all of this historical relevance, it is no wonder these phrases have resurfaced today as a popular call to protect the constitutional right to bear arms.
