For many, many, many, many years. Great Britain was powerful force on earth they had holdings all around the world's nations under their and so are little colonies began to get a little agitated because there is a lot of taxation of stuff that was going on and we had no representation in Great Britain, and so there were some rebellions that were stirring up highlighted by the time when all this he had come across the ocean and tea was a precious commodity and and we reached our guys stuck under the British ships in the still of the night and dumped all the tea into the Boston Harbor, Boston tea pot was the Boston tea party that it was engineered by primarily by a very brave woman named Sarah Bradley and she had the idea of addressing these men up his Native American and she saw that all that got done while still in the news didn't travel across the ocean. All that quickly, but when the king King George III heard about this particular act that pushed it over the edge storming across the Atlantic team. The British forces arming the biggest navy in the world. We had no navy weekly. We did have a trained army trained soldiers of Neville. He didn't have money to pay the soldiers with enough we did have enough equipment, but these men volunteered to fight off and in the war began and and and as we write about 25 minute women in this. When their lives were at risk they lead.
Let all lead courageously and after eight years of fighting the colonists equipped the largest military force on the face of the euro and and we became a free group of 13 states which then came together under the banner of the United States of America and and that's what happened, and at that point we became the first democracy on the face of the earth. While there were no democracies or people to wasted all these countries they were subject to kings and emperors and cruel leaders but yet and this is where George Washington comes in he was. Not perfect. Stu yet is false, but without George Washington we don't have a country while because for eight years. He headed up that military force never left his troops for eight years.
He was with them around the clock for eight and he lost more battles. Anyone who but fortunately one the last minute, Yorktown with the with the aid of France. France came to our to our us side and they were a big force but it's a fascinating to study men and women who lead different ways and they all are different skills different leadership talents but they all combined to lead to getting this country establishes a serious message of faith in here. That's the voice of Pat Williams, author of this brand-new book revolutionary leadership that Williams, the author of 717. Yes, I read all of my month out on a patent loves Jesus.
