Militia / American Revolutionary War Flags and Historical Information

April 19, 1775  The government goes door to door confiscating firearms.  Gun fire results - soldiers (i.e., government troops) vs. the militia (i.e., farmboys, drovers, carpenters, laborers, and school teachers, etc...). The American Revolution is ignited!

Hanover Associators

They resolved: 'that in the event of Great Britain attempting to force unjust laws upon us by strength of arms, our cause we leave to Heaven and our rifles.'

Source: "Flags to Color from the American Revolution."

This flag belongs to the Hanover Associators, and is on page 17. The colors are listed as "Red field and trim on cap; yellow fringe and scroll; black lettering and cap; green ground and uniform with cream legs, trim, feather and powder horn; brown belt and light blue rifle barrel."

"The Hanover Association of volunteers was formed on June 4, 1774, in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. They resolved 'that in the event of Great Britain attempting to force unjust laws upon us by strength of arms, our cause we leave to Heaven and our rifles.' The rifleman on the flag shows this point. This flag no longer exists, and the authority for it is an ancient engraving in the Pennsylvania State Archives." Randy Young, 1 February 2001

September Eleventh 1814 - The Battles at Plattsburgh

By Keith Herkalo

Both Roosevelt and Churchill recognized the strategic and political importance of the land and naval battles of Plattsburgh on September 11th, 1814. Yet time and other events can obscure facts, and the United States' second war for independence became a forgotten war, the Battles at Plattsburgh lost in the "rockets red glare" of Baltimore.

In this text, Keith Herkalo, using personal journals, military journals, contemporary newspaper accounts, and other original source documents, examines the evidence that leads to the conclusion that the Battles at Plattsburgh, on land and on Lake Champlain, were the key battles of the War of 1812. The other battles, Baltimore, Washington, and Sackets Harbor, were ruses meant to divert United States troops away from the prize: Plattsburgh, Lake Champlain, and a clear pathway into New England.

If not for the explemlary talents and skills of two young military officers, Commodore Thomas Macdonough and General Alexander Macomb, a small force of regular army and naval personnel and New York Militia, a few thousand Vermont Militia, a handful of Native Americans and Veteran Exempts (those too old for military service), and a group of boys from the local school, the United States, as we know it today, would not exist.


The above SCORING MASTER CONTROL SHEET reflects the following scoring methods:
Each Marksman's Total Score (and ranking) will be a combined  total of  his/her Race Score and his/her Hit Score determined as follows for each category ( i.e., Categories are: BSA Scope; BSA IRON; Venturing Scope; Venturing IRON):

Each running portion of the Biathlon will be scored using the following Percent Back System:

                  Marksman's  % Back = (2-(Marksman's  Time / Scoring Base)) X100

                  (The Running Scoring Base is the average time of the top three finishers)

(Formula Source: 2005 IBU Summer Biathlon World Championships)

Each Target Hit portion of the Biathlon  will be scored as follows:

                  (Marksman's Hits / Hit Scoring Base) X 120.

                  (The Hit Scoring Base is the average Hits of the top three finishers)

NOTE: The Marksmanship Portion is weighted 120 (not 100) due to the emphasis we are placing on shooting skills.

  Sharpshooter’s Pledge:

On my honor, as a Lassen Sharpshooter, Venturer / Scout, I promise: 

To always follow the rules of safe firearm handling and shooting;

To seek to master those physical and mental factors essential to the firing of an accurate shot;

To treasure my American heritage, the Bill of Rights, and do all I can to protect and preserve the Unalienable Individual Right to Keep and Bear Arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment;

To recognize such individual right as being justly considered as the palladium of the liberties of our republic and deterrent to, and defense against, government tyranny and oppression.

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.
