  •  Mix of Roman and English levee (2+ / 0-)

    Also operative at this time was a newly romanticized version of the old levee. The American Revolution itself had been "volunteer" and "levee" fought, and the Constitution eight years later was already living in a veneration of that effort.

    Another way to see the intent, if we really want to, is by simply looking at how the nation went about its army business later. Again: state militias, state troops, for a long time to come, and "bring your own ballistics."

    People complain about dirt, but I'd like to see them make some.
