    19 April 1775

    On this day in Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts in 1775, British troops marched in to confiscate powder and lead from the militia's. The "shot heard around the world", ignited the American Revolution, eventually securing our freedom from tyranny!

    The history of this day is taught in the Appleseed program, in between blocks of rifle instruction, a history lesson on this day is presented to those in class. A very special day, one that should be marked and remembered more than it is.

    April 19 is the real Patriot's Day.

    This as opposed to the "Patriot Day" farce created much later on.
    “After all is said and done, successful rifle shooting on the range is nothing more than first finding a rifle and lot of ammunition which will do precisely the same thing shot after shot, and then developing the same skill in the rifleman.” ~ Capt. E. C. Crossman (The Book of the Springfield)
