Sons of Liberty Art Print
CALLING ALL SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF LIBERTY!
NEW DEFIANCE ART FOR 2022...
Defiance is back and is pushing the assault forward! Here we have him sporting a Washington's Life Guard themed uniform and look. He is advancing through the fog of battle in front of the flag aptly named "The Rebellious Stripes." We stitched on this flag the word "LIBERTY" (read on to see why). On Defiance's canteen is painted in lettering - "An Appeal To Heaven" and underneath the Pine Tree, "Sons of Liberty." The "Appeal To Heaven" motto and Pine Tree appeared on Washington's Schooner Ensign (flag).
The shemagh that Defiance has wrapped around his face is a representation of our modern flag, quite incidentally, to represent patriots of today in the "Spirit of our fore fathers and their fight for freedom and liberty... of which we have so greatly benefited from to this day." DEFIANCE '76 IS "THE SPIRIT OF AMERICA!... a nation Under God for Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness for all it's citizens... this we'll defend."
The Sons of Liberty, Rebellious Stripes and Liberty!
"Liberty Poles, Liberty Trees, and Liberty Flags were mentioned with increased frequency as protests began to grow within the colonies prior to the Revolution. Men banded together into 'Sons of Liberty' societies and would meet under some large oak or other distinctive tree on the green. They erected Liberty Poles which local authorities and Loyalists would, of course, try to chop down...
Flags also began to appear. These were usually red ensigns bearing such mottos as 'LIBERTY' or 'CONGRESS.' General Charles Lee, in 1775, urged that Army flags bear the motto 'Liberty.'
According to Mastai, in the 'The Stars and the Stripes,' early Revolutionary accounts speak of a Sons of Liberty flag which had nine vertical red and white stripes... Nine colonies participated in the Stamp Act Convention's Declaration of Rights in 1765."
- Standards And Colors Of The American Revolution, Edward Richardson, 1982
