Featuring: Ebben Raves of Project Appleseed
Sheriff Oldham had to cancel due to an unforseen scheduling conflict. We hope to be able to have him sometime in the future, but we are pleased to have Mr Raves from Project Appleseed.
Project Appleseed is an activity of The Revolutionary War Veterans Association, a non-profit organization, dedicated to teaching every American our shared heritage.
Our volunteer instructors travel across the country teaching those who attend about the difficult choices, the heroic actions, and the sacrifices that the Founders made on behalf of modern Americans, all of whom are their posterity.
Our heritage program vividly portrays the Battles of Lexington and Concord with the kind of care and immediacy that is absent from most formal schooling. Modern listeners are confronted with the danger, the fear, and the heartbreaking separations that arose out of the choices made on April 19th, 1775. They are also reminded of the marksmanship skills and masterful organization that ultimately helped set the colonists on the path to success. Those who attend gain a better understanding of the fundamental choices faced by our ancestors as they began to set the stage for the nation we now enjoy.
