We have to keep on our toes. This statement on Wikipedia was just
reverted within a half-hour:
The reason for the start of the Battle of Bunker Hill was that the
Americans signed the Declaration of Independence but the British
wanted to keep the Americans under Britains laws.
The Declaration of Independence happened over a year after the battle.
The T.S. Eliot article has changed by usage of a different pronoun
