April 21, we will celebrate our heritage of freedom.


On April 19, 1775, soldiers of the English Crown attempted to disarm the towns of Lexington and Concord Massachusetts by seizing their powder and ball magazines.


The Colonial Militias were called out, and the minutemen met the British "regulars" on the town common in Lexington, and the colonials lost 10 men, but no powder was lost. The British then moved to Concord where they did manage to capture a few cannon and were met by more militia on the North Bridge, where "the shot heard 'round the world" was fired. After suffering losses they retreated to Boston with Colonial sniper forces firing on them.
All told the British suffered 174 wounded, that day, with an additional 73 killed, and 26 missing.
The American Riflemen saved the day!

This is our heritage, and owning our own rifles/firearms is our birthright as Americans.



Come join us in our celebration of freedom in the greatest country on Earth.
