First Sentence Friday

Today’s sentence comes from a new history book –
1775: A Good Year for Revolution by Kevin Phillips

“Such was the arousal and spirit of 1775 that rage militaire – a patriotic furor, a passion for arms – swept the thirteen colonies that spring and summer, giving the American Revolution its martial assurance and its vital, if somewhat delusionary, early momentum.”
