  • To everyone saying: No the Americans didnt help at all in world war 1 or world war 2 please shut up. In ww1 the americans were the turning point of the war in defeating the germans on the hundred days offensive. in WW2 america helped the most by taking out japan and planning the normandy landing. If the US hadnt been involved in any of the wars the allies wouldve lost

  • Y O R K T O W N (pls be nice this took a hot min) Monsieur Hamilton Monsieur Lafayette In command where you belong How you say, no sweat Finally on the field, we've had quite a run Immigrants, we get the job done So what happens if we win? I go back to France I bring freedom to my people If I'm given the chance We'll be with you when you do Go lead your men I see you on the other side 'Til we meet again, let's go! I am not throwin' away my shot! I am not throwin' away my shot! Hey yo, I'm just like my country I'm young scrappy and hungry And I'm not throwin' away my shot! I am not throwin' away my shot! 'Til the world turns upside down 'Til the world turns upside down! I imagine death so much, it feels more like a memory This is where it gets me, on my feet the enemy ahead of me If this is the end of me, at least I have a friend with me Weapon in my hand, a command, and my men with me Then I remember my Eliza's expecting me Not only that, my Eliza's expecting We gotta go, gotta get the job done Gotta start a new nation, gotta meet my son! Take the bullets out your gun! (What?) The bullets out your gun! (What?) We move undercover and we move as one Through the night, we have one shot to live Another day We cannot let a stray gunshot give us away We will fight up close, seize the moment and stay in it It's either that or meet the business end of a bayonet The code word is "Rochambeau", dig me? (Rochambeau!) You have your orders now, go, man, go! And so the American experiment begins With my friends all scattered to the winds Laurens is in South Carolina, redefining bravery We'll never be free until we end slavery! When we finally drive the British away Lafayette is there waiting in Chesapeake Bay! How did we know that this plan would work? We had a spy on the inside, that's right Hercules Mulligan! A tailor spyin' on the British government! I take their measurements, information and then I smuggle it! (Up) To my brother's revolutionary covenant I'm runnin' with the Sons of Liberty and I am lovin' it! See, that's what happens when you up against the ruffians We in the shit now, somebody gotta shovel it! Hercules Mulligan, I need no introduction When you knock me down I get the fuck back up again! Left! Right! Hold! Go! What! What! What! After a week of fighting, a young man in a red coat stands on a parapet We lower our guns as he frantically waves a white handkerchief And just like that, it's over, we tend to our wounded, we count our dead Black and white soldiers wonder alike if this really means freedom Not yet We negotiate the terms of surrender I see George Washington smile We escort their men out of Yorktown They stagger home single file Tens of thousands of people flood the streets There are screams and church bells ringing And as our fallen foes retreat I hear the drinking song they're singing The world turned upside down The world turned upside down The world turned upside down The world turned upside down Down, down, down, down Freedom for America, freedom for France! Down, down, down Gotta start a new nation, gotta meet my son Down, down, down We won! We won! We won! We won! The world turned upside down!

  • Excellent compressed history of the American Revolutionary War. Gives you the meat and leaves out most of the gravy. Even so, it's amazing how complex the fighting in that war was. Basically, the British were trying to fight a war in another continent against people who lived there. The British got themselves involved in a no-win situation and eventually just gave up from exhaustion and the never ending expense of it all. This pattern has been repeated so many times throughout human history that one would think it would not be used and then people could finally eliminate war and live in peace with each other. But, apparently, it is a lesson that is quickly forgotten by each new generation and much be relearned over and over.
