Audio Samples from “Mike Church’s Times That Try Men’s Souls”
The Story begins…
Originally conceived as 30 minute special for the Mike Church Show on Christmas Eve, 2103, the story just kept growing as Mike wrote and once begun, he could not stop without spinning the entire, amazing story few Americans know.
Now, for the first time in recorded media, the entire story of George Washington’s engagement of the British Army at Long Island and the series of miraculous retreats that battle spawned are told. Narrated by Mike Church, Times That Try Men’s Souls is an audio-epic you and your family do not want to miss.
Ben Franklin tells General Howe the States are Independent & only They can rescind or surrender (destroys the Lincoln myth of 1 indivisible blob of America created by Declaration)
Washington resolves to strike back at the Empire
Thomas Paine recounts Washington’s miraculous retreat across NJ
The Crossing’s courageous plan is launched on Christmas Day, 1776
The story opens with the history of Emanuel Leutze’s famous painting of “Washington’s Crossing” and the miraculous retreat Washington had to execute from Long Island, across Manhattan, and nearly half the length of New Jersey. Along the way, Washington loses almost 2/3 of his army to KIA’s, desertion, capture and failure to re-enlist. It is only by “Providence” that he crosses the 6th river in his retreat just as Lord Cornwallis is about to capture him. The story of the events that inspired “The Crossing” are exciting and new to most listeners, plus Church reveals the identity of the famous “widow that saved the Revolution” the Widow of Mount Holly. The Widow detained the Hessian, Count Donop and prevented him from being in his proper position on Christmas Day, a feat that spared Washington from certain defeat at Trenton.
DON’T FORGET THE OPTIONAL BONUS FEATURE: The Fame of Our Fathers
Forgotten Founding Father Dr. Benjamin Rush urges the Continental Congress to hold votes by individuals and not state delegations in the Articles of Confederation
What did the Founding Fathers seek in return for their work? They expected lasting fame or “conditores imperiorum” as explained in this passage from Mike Church’s Fame of Our Fathers”
The Fame of Our Fathers tells the true, exciting stories of the events that led to the federal convention of 1787 and the men who put their stamp on history and earned lasting fame. Many Americans are inspired by the Founders but we never bother to ask: who inspired the Founders. The Fame of Our Fathers answers that question and many more.
• Was the Constitution the result of a miracle or a well executed plan?
• Were the men we admire as Founders the ultimate, selfless public servants or did they have other motives for their deeds?
• James Madison gets credited as the “Father of The Constitution” but is George Washington more deserving of the title?
• Why did many patriots like Patrick Henry oppose writing a new Constitution and instead favored amending the Articles of Confederation?
You’ll hear the founders debate and live these events and more with sound design so real you’ll feel like you were there. The Fame of Our Fathers features a moving, original musical score by Jimm Mosher & Alan Grossman (the Road to Independence). “Fame” is passionately narrated by Nationally Syndicated talk-show-host Mike Church and features an ensemble cast of veteran voice talent with Special Guest Star Jay Thomas (Cheers) as Ben Franklin.
“At a time when our founding constitutional principles are more necessary than ever, there is a dearth of understanding about what they are and how they got to be our principles — the theories and thinking behind them by the men who forged our nation. Mike Church is filling that educational void. With Fame of Our Fathers, he not only recaptures our history but informs our modern debate.” - Andrew C. McCarthy – author - of the national bestseller “Willful Blindness: A Memoir of the Jihad.”
