'Merica, a brand spanking new country.
Hooray! Continental Congress. God Bless America.
Wonderful! Happy independence. I recommend that we also raise four companies of Germans.
"Life" is the first one listed. Without "life" none of the other "rights" matter.
Not liberty, not the pursuit of happiness, not property, not free speech, not freedom of the press, not freedom to worship, not freedom to assemble.
If life is a "right"....well, it makes one wonder doesn't it? Quite controversial a subject, for some...it seems.
I wonder how the Spanish dollar compared to the English pound back then?
I noticed there are three runaways.
An Irish indentured servant, with a 25 shilling reward. £1¼.
A bound boy, with a 30 shilling reward. £1½.
And a negro, with a $3 reward.
Just makes me wonder who would pay more to the bounty hunter.
