    Nobody got it right yet, but one person was very close.

    This is correct. I must have forgot to check the next page before I posted previously.

    CLUE 1: “By the rude bridge which arched the flood, their flag to April’s breeze unfurled.”

    From Alfred Lord Tennyson’s The Concord Hymn, which is a poem about a monument dedicated to the farmers who took up arms during the Battle of Lexington & Concord which started the Revolutionary War.

    Ok, so clue number 1:

    #1 The alliance of the three was strong and brutal but the others didn't like it

    Sounds like a description of the 2nd Triumvirate, so... Mark Antony?

    None are close, so I'll give a second clue:

    #1 The alliance of the three was strong and brutal but the others didn't like it
    #2 They ruled 100 years of glory, but then an omen came. Disease and war, the enemies rejoice. The end was here.

    That is right, the first clue refers to the Aztec Empire also known as the triple alliance (Tenochtitlan, Texcoco, and Tlacopan). The second is the downfall of the empire, the omen was the arrival of Cortez.

    I used up all my creative juices on my last Minutemen riddle. Someone else can go if they wish.
