The Liberty Tree



Inspiration from
America's past...



Boston Tea Party
December, 1773



Sons of Liberty
Est. 1765



To Save
America's Future...



 It's a tall old tree
 and a strong old tree,
And we are the Sons,
 yes, we are the Sons, 
the Sons of Liberty!








Plant the seed in our homeland, boys.
Let it grow where all can see.
Feed it with our devotion, boys.
Call it the Liberty Tree.





The Liberty Tree
Boston, Massachusetts




Save it from the storm, boys.
Water down its roots with tea;
And the sun will always shine
On the old Liberty Tree!




Colonial Musket
 

March along with the piper, boys.
We were born forever free.
We will pay the piper, boys,
Beneath the Liberty Tree! 





Pay the price they're asking, boys,
Always pay the tyrant's fee.
Never give up the struggle, boys,
Fight for the Liberty Tree! 


Battle of Lexington
1775

Stand for the rights of man, boys.
Stand against all tyranny.
Hang the of light of freedom, boys,
High on the Liberty Tree!  







It will grow as we grow, boys.
It will be as strong as we.
We must cling to our faith, boys,
Faith in the Liberty Tree!



"The Sons of Liberty"
Walt Disney's
"Johnny Tremain" 
(1957)


 It's a tall old tree

 and a strong old tree,
And we are the Sons,

 yes, we are the Sons, 

the Sons of Liberty! 

 "The Sons of Liberty"
Tom Blackburn and George Bruns
1956 


"I believe that this
spiritual and intellectual freedom
which we Americans enjoy
is our greatest cultural blessing.
Therefore, it seems to me,
that the first duty of culture
is to defend freedom
and resist all tyranny."
-Walt Disney
