April 19, 1775

Post by longcaribiner » Thu Apr 16, 2009 8:51 am

234 years ago, an illegal militia group of farmers and country folk got word that the state government sent troops to seize their illegal cache of weapons. They faced off against the troops at Old North Bridge in Concord, Massachusetts, on April 19, 1775.

"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."


Sumbuddy ought to remind the folks in DC.

A quote from one of our Founding Fathers, Benjamin Franklin perhaps, "If we don't all stand together, then surely we will all swing alone.

I thought it was " we either hang together, or we hang separately".

Sorry, I'm not sure of the exact quote. But the final outcome is the same. I'll not start an argument with a fellow shooter. WE MUST ALL STAND TOGETHER.

No argument meant here either Jerry. This is one of the quotes that I have hanging out in the reloading shack.

You certainly are correct in that we must all stand together in these troubled times.

Good shooting,

Gene
