We are Shoot Bosses for Project Appleseed, part of a a nationwide cadre of volunteers who instruct American Heritage and Rifle Marksmanship to thousands of Americans each year.
Ever wondered what an Appleseed event is like? Here is a great introduction:
While marksmanship is important to Appleseed, that is not our highest priority. The most important message we present is the history of the first day of the American Revolutionary War, April 19th, 1775, with the battles of Lexington and Concord: the day and place we became Americans. American citizens need to realize that the liberty and freedom we possess today was bequeathed to us by the sacrifices of the patriots who fought long ago.
Of the fifty-six men who pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor when signing that “traitorous document”, what we call the Declaration of Independence, five were captured by the British and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Nine fought and died from wounds or hardships incurred in the Revolutionary War. Winning the war was just the start of our Grand Experiment in government.
Many of today’s Americans are uninformed about the ideas and ideals of this past generation, and the loss of those traditions places our country in great danger. Project Appleseed aims to rekindle the spirit of those true patriots.
