A Group Of Black Militiamen Stand In Formation, Their Muskets Raised In Defiance. To Shake Their Guns In The Tyrant S Face: Libertarian Political Violence And The Origins Of The Militia Movement

In the annals of American history, the story of the black militia of Revolutionary America is often overlooked. Yet, these brave men played a pivotal role in the fight for independence, fighting alongside their white counterparts to secure the freedoms we enjoy today.

To Shake Their Guns In The Tyrant's Face tells the story of these forgotten heroes, from their humble beginnings in the colonial era to their heroic service in the Revolutionary War. Drawing on extensive research, author Robert Blackhurst paints a vivid picture of the lives and experiences of these men, bringing their stories to life with vivid detail.

Blackhurst traces the origins of the black militia to the early days of the slave trade. As the number of enslaved Africans in America grew, so too did the fear of slave revolts. In response, white colonists enacted a series of laws designed to suppress black resistance. These laws prohibited blacks from owning firearms, assembling in groups, or even learning to read.

Despite these oppressive laws, black resistance continued to simmer. In the years leading up to the Revolutionary War, black militias began to form in cities and towns throughout the colonies. These militias provided a sense of community and empowerment for black men, and they also served as a deterrent to potential slave revolts.

When the Revolutionary War broke out in 1775, black militias were quick to join the fight for independence. They fought in some of the most important battles of the war, including the Battle of Bunker Hill and the Battle of Saratoga. Black militiamen also played a key role in the Siege of Yorktown, which ultimately led to the British surrender.

The service of black militiamen in the Revolutionary War helped to lay the foundation for the abolition of slavery in the United States. It also helped to establish the principle that all men are created equal, regardless of their race or origin.

To Shake Their Guns In The Tyrant's Face is a powerful and inspiring story of courage, sacrifice, and the fight for freedom. It is a must-read for anyone interested in American history, the American Revolution, or the fight for freedom and liberty.
