The Sons of Liberty represented groups of patriots in the American Revolution. Throughout the history of the United States there have been sons and daughters that continued this tradition; they are those that served in the military. The Sons of Liberty Museum is "saving military history one soldier at a time" (sm) honoring and providing education including STEM-HGL programs as we tell the story of the service of these 'Sons'.
Saving Military History One Soldier At A Time
Sons of Liberty Museum is dedicated to the memory of all who served, nothing more or less.
It has happened again. Friday January 22, 2021 our facebook page has been shutdown, terminated, deleted by fb. No reason or warning given.
Update; Backup after days gone, no reason, notice, etc. Having an inconsistent web page is no way to support a business. We put a lot into our fb pages, however, it's debatable how long we will continue to put in work on that site. We may open others. Stay Tuned. Keep in touch with our monthly e-newsletter.
For Immediate Release: October 9, 2020
Open Letter to All Veterans, Friends, Families, Citizens.
What would you say or think when two Non-Profits, the Army Air Corps Museum and the Sons of Liberty Museums facebook pages have been completely deleted? The personal accounts of the two admins who happen to be the organizations' executive directors also found the chopping block. There was no warning, no 'facebook jail' or suspension. None of our posts were fact checked only history in stories and photos enjoyed by our followers. This happened sometime Monday, Oct. 5, 2020.
Our slogans and mantra is "Saving Military History One Soldier at a Time" as we provide historical accounts of the men and women of all branches of service from the Revolutionary War to present day. We honor the service those 'Sons of Liberty' who have sworn an oath to defend the constitution and defend it against all enemies both foreign and domestic.
So what problem does facebook have with these two very patriotic and non-political organizations? What problem do they have with our veterans and their service?
These groups have been on facebook for over 10 years with no problems but in a blink of an eye they are gone as if they never existed; no reason given.
For years these Museums have had programs and exhibits at various civic events in North Texas including the symphony, veteran gala events, veteran organizational meetings and air shows. They provide programs for many schools teaching history to children about their ancestors. They have also exhibited at the Texas State Capitol in Austin.
With COVID these Museums have not been able to be in the public sphere and have lost one of their revenue streams.
On facebook they had thousands of followers in a very active feed. Many people viewed our monthly newsletter in that feed. A second revenue stream has disappeared. Additionally, many artifact donations occurred as a result of a first contact via facebook.
These Museums become the custodians of your family heritage and tell the history of Citizen Soldiers. We believe this is a very righteous mission; what say you?
So what made facebook spit on the Sons of Liberty Museum and the Army Air Corps Library and Museum? ....
Sound off America ..... Sound off patriots .....

Here are a few of those stories
With an expansive collection of military artifacts dating from the Civil War to the present day conflicts we can tailor programs to meet the interest of each audience. Uniforms, gear, weapons, medals, ribbons, photos, scrapbooks, periodicals, papers and battlefield relics preserve rich historical stories. This collection continues to grow and we welcome donations from all branches of service, Army, Army Air Corps, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps and including the Coast Guard, Merchant Marine and the new Space Force. We also house artifacts from the service academies, military schools and persons who worked on the homefront during wartime.
In this day we also devote resources to the digital side of our organization where we have amassed over 250,000 web pages of material. This includes histories and an honor roll. With a strategic partner the MIARN we have published material on our citizen soldiers still listed as Missing in Action.
The training of personnel and usage of military functions have their roots in geography, math and science and we are generating programs containing these foundational disciplines and these are portrayed in the resultant service of the individual.
Exhibits and equipment are props that aid in the storytelling of this melding of history and personal service.
