248 years ago

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.


One thought on “248 years ago

  1. Bless you for remembering the birth of what was to become the United States, Lexington Green, Massachusetts 19 April 1775.

    Lexington Green on 19 April 1775, has long deserved a Patriotic recognition day. Moreso, IMO, than 4 July 1776.
