This is the third oil painting in the Defiance 76 series, featuring "Defiance" as a minuteman, or First Citizen...
"And out from the suppressive acrid smoke pushed forward a rag tag, yet resolved First Citizen - a farmer, teacher, craftsman, watchman, banker, shop keeper, builder... a common citizen. Finally pushed to the limit, a call to arms and "a sure defiance" is born in order to put up a defense for the preservation of natural law and the virtue of a society built on individual liberty sustained by religious principles."
Defiance 76 is a spirit born of our Fore Father's resolve, sacrifice, faith, and courage to establish an orderly society that champions the dignity of the Person; who, created in the image of God, is given certain inalienable rights such as life, liberty, and the pursuit of property with the ability and right to defend these rights by an means necessary. And, any attempt to strip or suppress these rights will meet "a sure defiance!"
