Today's Holiday

Some recall this.

Patriots Day may be the least known American holiday, and the day most deserving of our recognition. Observed in Massachusetts and Maine only. Don’t know it? It marks the day, April 19, 1775, on which Americans took up arms against their king, and bled, at the crack of terrible dawn.

Yup. "The shot heard 'round the world" was fired on this day, 1775...

HT: Confederate Yankee
