I was wondering if anyone else has ever noticed how Alma 51 is a rehash of the American Revolution? Take a read tonight if you have the book and tell me what you think. If you need a copy, you can find it electronically at www.lds.org
King-Men = British
Freemen = American Revolutionaries
Moroni ~ George Washington
Standard of Liberty = The flag of the revolution
Key words – Free government, freedom, voice of the people, people of liberty, defend their country.
Key ideas – nobility and high born against the [commoners], defending cities near the sea, the opposition is a greater number and force.
I’m sure there are other similarities, but these are the ones that stood out.
