Help Me Find a New Working Title for My Book Project

As many readers of The Way of Improvement Leads Home know, I am working on a book on Presbyterians and the American Revolution.  I recently decided to abandon my original working title "A Presbyterian Rebellion: The American Revolution in the Mid-Atlantic" for several reasons.  First, I want to extend the project into parts of the South and the southern backcountry (not just the Mid-Atlantic).  Second, I do not want the word "Presbyterian" in the title of the book--it makes it sound too denominational.  (There are other reasons as well, but these will suffice).

So I have come up with a slew of possible titles--all short, catchy, and adapted from actual things that revolutionary-era Presbyterians said in either public or private writings.  I have changed my subtitle to "Presbyterians and the Coming of the American Revolution."

Here is where I need your help.  Which one of these titles sounds best?  I am thinking mostly in terms of marketability here.  I would greatly appreciate hearing your suggestions in the comments section or on Facebook. Thanks!
