I am a seed of Albion. Thirteenth-generation North American. My ancestors left Ipswich during the Great Migration of Puritans in the 1630's and we have been moving west ever since (if I go much further west I will be east!). My ancestors were Loyalists during the Revolutionary War and had to move to Canada at the conclusion of the war. Later generations immigrated back to America.

No, I am not a Royalist.

I enjoy Cranach's painting as a work of art and enjoy the symbolism of George defeating the dragon. I fear for the future of England with the Islamist threat and the crazy political correctness and multiculturalism. Here is to hoping that Albion recovers the vigor of St. George to stand up to her enemies when needed.
