Patriot’s Day

Project Appleseed will host special ‘Patriot’s Day’ marksmanship events across the country the weekend of April 22-23 to commemorate the events of our nation’s founding. At these events students hear the full and complete story of how the Revolution, and the Revolutionary War, led to the founding of the United States. It’s not too late to sign up now at http://appleseedinfo.org – you won’t regret it!

Over the next several days we will post the true story of April 19 – the story that is not told in schools anymore, if it ever was. Please follow along and learn.

Listen my children and you shall hear,
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in seventy-five;
Hardly a man is now alive,
Who remembers that famous day and year.

Longfellow, 1860
