Patriot’s Day

I have a speaking gig tomorrow at high noon. I share the cause with you here:

PATRICK HENRY, BENJAMIN FRANKLIN AND BETSY ROSS WILL APPEAR ON THE STEPS OF THE IDAHO CAPITOL FOR PATRIOT’S DAY COMMEMORATION

Colonial Patriots will appear on the steps of the Idaho Capitol on April 19th, 12:00 P.M to commemorate the Battles of Lexington and Concord Massachusetts in 1775 which began the American Revolutionary War.

There will be a reading of a Proclamation from the Office of the Governor proclaiming April 19th as Patriot’s Day in the State of Idaho, as well as speakers from local patriot groups who will ask us to focus on the sacrifices made by the men and women over the course of the eight-year struggle which led to our independence.

According to a resolution passed by the Idaho Legislature in 2006, Patriot’s Day is to be observed on April 19th of every year. Several states have officially recognized Patriot’s Day but Idaho is the only state in the west that commemorates the event.
