How incredibly ironic

you would ask this question. I just got home with my granddaughter who I pulled out of the public school system two years ago to home school. She just went to take some practice GED tests to see how she would do.

I was reading through some practice GED tests while waiting and came to one of the questions the history or Civic test. Not sure which one it was.
Low and behold there was a short paragraph to read about the colonists being pissed at king George over taxation. It went on to say that the UNRULY Colonists began to throw rocks and sticks at the British Soldiers who finally were forced to shoot to defend themselves. That was supposedly the shot heard around the world and the beginning of the Revolution. What amazed me was the blatant bias in favor of the British soldiers.
