[145] According to the only detailed study done of a community during the Revolutionary War, the Hackensack Valley, a great deal of rebel and Loyalist militia fighting was of the “score settling” variety, as the rubric of revolution was used to attack rival ethnic groups, churches, and neighbors.� See John Shy’s A People Numerous and Armed, p. 206.� See a discussion of the fractious nature of the revolution in Chomsky and Herman’s After the Cataclysm, pp. 40-46.� In Alfred Young, Terry Fife’s and Mary Janzen’s We the People, the authors began the book by noting that John Adams was writing as early as 1809 that American history was already “getting full of falsehoods.”� The authors noted that “The history of this period [the American Revolution – Ed.] is obscured by hero worship and sacred symbols” and it was difficult to “separate myth from reality, or to challenge the sacred.” (see p. viii).� [146] See John Shy’s A People Numerous and Armed, p. 146.
