"JUST READING AND SHARING THIS CLASSIC STORY ABOUT FREEDOM IS AN ACT OF DEFIANCE TO TYRANNY!"
This project is a WAY for ANYONE ANYWHERE to BECOME INVOLVED in the FIGHT FOR FREEDOM. Unlike political organizations and others that claim to fight for freedom but accomplish little of lasting value this project possesses the real power to create change because it speaks directly to the hearts and minds of people through the power of great literature. As the American Patriot Samuel Adams once stated: “It does not take a majority to prevail...but rather an irate minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” The story of William Tell as written by Friedrich Schiller can create just such
“brushfires of freedom” in the minds of people everywhere by inspiring them with the greatest story of freedom ever recorded in literature.

The complete book along with a special introduction by Ben D. Kennedy is available ONLINE & COMPLETELY FREE here at the Maid of Heaven Foundation at WILLIAM TELL BOOK
