Scenario (re-enactment theme is based upon events from the American Revolutionary War period): 

Intelligence has determined that immediately following snow storms,  tyrannical government troops, being accompanied by foreign mercenaries, are marching through a snow covered mountain pass to Shingletown for the purpose of seizing the firearms of the citizenry (including plans to conduct door to door searches), and to plans to blockade the town (cutting off supplies of food, fuels,  etc...).  Alert has been issued for the Minuteman from the following Militias to report for  immediate muster (February  --, 2010 at 10:00 hours): Green Mountain Boys Militia, and the Green River Rifles Militia**.

American Minuteman Pledge

Our Motto:

"Exercising the American Bill of Rights."


"The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them...."

Quoted from Joseph Story* in, “Commentaries on the Constitution” (1833). 

* Former Associate Justice of U.S. Supreme Court



"...The one thing that is absolute is that the Second Amendment guarantees a personal and individual right to keep and bear arms, and prohibits government from disarming the people...."

Quoted from: Silveira v. Lockyer - Dissent by: Judge Kozinski.
