A Glimpse Of The Past Through The National Guard Collection - There are moments in history that spark national changes. In 1774 the British made changes in colonial government, cancelling sessions of the General Court. The Stamp Act was being increasingly enforced and revolt was in the air - the Boston Tea Party a most visible protest. The Reverend Jonas Clarke has been described as the "custodian of political theory in Lexington" and was quite responsible for itemizing the many violations of the Stamp Act, including two essential principles of the Magna Carta. He laid the rationale for military preparedness. As early as 1768 he pointed out that "where courage, valour or fortitude has reason for its basis," it enables men "to face the greatest dangers, to stand the severest shocks, to meet undaunted and serene the charge of the most formidable enemy and all the horrors of war." At this time the militia considered itself dissolved, being succeeded by organizations set up by the Committee of Safety on the recommendations of the Provincial Congress. From the militia an elite company of active men called the Minutemen was formed to be ready at a moment's notice. After an alert by Paul Revere, that moment came on April 19 on the Lexington Commons when Captain John Parker and the Minutemen clashed with British troops and set off the Revolution. Minutemen groups quickly formed all over the colonies. The culmination of the fighting resulted in the signing of the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia in 1776 with the guidance of men such as Ben Franklin, one of the organizers of the Pennsylvania...National Guard!
