A little history for you about the quote "Appeal To Heaven"... This quote is part of John Locke’s justification for the overthrow of Britain’s King James II, who was removed from power in 1688, an event known as the “Glorious Revolution.” Locke’s “appeal to heaven” is not about prayer; it is about direct political action. Locke argues that people have rights that cannot be infringed upon by the government and that rebellion is justified if it is to defend those rights. As American colonists increasingly came into conflict with the British government during the 1760s and 1770s, Locke’s words became an inspiration to many patriots. After all, if the Glorious Revolution was justified as a defense against tyranny, didn’t the American Revolution have the same justification? The slogan “An Appeal to Heaven” is less dramatic than “Give me Liberty or give me Death,” but in its own way it is equally forceful and evocative. It is a call to action couched in the words of a philosopher rather than a politician. VISIT US AT WWW.CARVEDGUN.COM
