Appleseed Coast-to-Coast “April 19th” Events

Paul Revere.

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.
(Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Concord Hymn”
written for the North Bridge memorial)

On April 19th, 1775, the British farmers, shopkeepers, lawyers, doctors, and craftsmen then living in the Colonies chose to face one of the the world’s most feared and best equipped Army in a dispute over their rights and privileges as Englishmen. Learn why and how these brave early Americans did what they did at an Appleseed near you. RWVA instructors use Brandeis University History Professor David Hackett Fischer’s best-seller Paul Revere’s Ride to teach how the Revolutionary War began in a series of stories that capture the initial hesitation as well as the ferocity of that day. After attending, you will be able to answer these four questions:

  1. When and where was the American Revolution won? The answer, direct from a founder, will surprise you…
  2. Where did the Revolutionary War break out? Not one in a thousand Americans knows this.
  3. Who fired the first shots on Lexington Common? Historians may not know, but we’ll be glad to supply at least circumstantial proof.
  4. Why did the Redcoats break and run at the North Bridge? When faced with rude country colonials…

On the weekend of April 19th RWVA Volunteers Have Organized events Nationwide Coast-to-Coast.

Volunteers have worked across the Nation for Americans to gather and celebrate their Heritage and History so that they can study and share the traditions of Rifle Marksmanship to remember, and honor the men and women who birthed a nation on April 19, 1775. On this weekend, we can meet on the rolling plains of Oklahoma. We can meet in the arid expanses of New Mexico. We can meet under the shade of palm trees in Florida and California – and in the shadow of the Rockies.

Please join us in April at one of our “April 19th, 1775” Appleseeds. To remember. To honor. To learn.
