The Minuteman and a question.

From 1909

But, raising a point worth considering.

That minute man was likely a yeoman farmer.  A freeholder in a country most made up of freeholders, in the town and country (but which also featured slavery and indentured servitude everywhere).

How much of the country that he caused to come into being would he recognize today?

And for how long could he have recognized it, if we assume that it would be unrecognizable today (which perhaps we should not assume).
