One can argue that the beginning of the country happened.
The Battle at Lexington Green.
The colonists decided not to be disarmed, not to give up their powder and shot. THey resisted “Lawful Authority”…
The famous quote from Captain Parker says it all:
“Stand your ground; don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.”
And thus, it did. The beginnings of the beginning of the United States.
April 19 is a somewhat special day. Lots of momentous things have happened on this day over the years.
But the start of our country is one.
