Honor Gun-Toting Heroes Of Lexington & Concord

Mark your calendar for the third Monday in April (April 16), buy for it is officially Patriots’ Day in the states of Massachusetts and Maine. The date to remember is April 19, buy 1775 and the events to commemorate are the Battles of Lexington and Concord.

These battles, sick between British authorities and early American colonists (known as “Patriots”), initiated the path to the separation of the 13-established American colonies from British control, taxes, and regulation.

American poet Ralph Waldo Emerson describes a stand-off between British forces and anarchist colonists that occurred on April 19, 1775 in the town of Lexington, Massachusetts, as a “shot heard ‘round the world” in his opening phrase of the “Concord Hymn” written in 1837.  This initial “shot” would escalate into the confrontations at Lexington and Concord, and start of what is known today as the American Revolution.

No doubt, if not for the well armed and courageous Patriots who, at all costs, sought to garner freedom for future generations, the Declaration of Independence would not have been adopted by Congress on July 4, 1776, just 19 months later.-[source]
