A Long Train of Abuses is the story of men and women in Montana that have a strong distrust of government. These people studied law, history and politics with a common goal of correcting that bad government, and they were willing to risk everything to accomplish that goal. This Ebook traces the origin of their complaints against the government, the time line of events and a summary of the stolen research, all of which is now in your hands. This Ebook took almost 20 years to compile and includes many references to law books, news reports and personal letters from the people involved. The Author of this Ebook was a forward observer in the events, a participant at-large in the Standoff and a recorder of Montana history in the 1990s. Now that this report is published digitally, the history of the Montana Freemen will never be stolen.
