The RWVA invites you to experience a LibertySeed event where our volunteers will tell the story of the birth of our Nation. These events are free to the public.
The 19th of April, 1775, a day that forever changed the course of our Nation. Why is this such an important day and who was involved in the birth of our Nation?
It will not be the story you think you know, or the story you heard in school. The volunteers at the RWVA are passionate about American Heritage. We love to tell people the Story of the Three Strikes, about 'The Day the Shot was Heard Around the World.' The volunteers are willing to tell the story to groups around the Nation. If your group is interested in hearing the story please contact us.
See the Schedule below!
- When and where was the American Revolution fought and won?
- When and where did the Revolutionary War actually start?
- What caused the professional British Army to break and run from colonial farmers and shopkeepers?
- Who fired the first shots of the Revolutionary War?
- What did Paul Revere really say as he made his midnight ride?
It will be the real story, the story that historians have discovered, the story of the first day of the American Revolution.
Along the way, the story will answer questions you didn't even know existed, like:
Who fired the famous "Shot Heard Round the World"? Historians have debated this for years, but you'll find out the real answer at a LibertySeed.
Why did it take "three strikes of the match" before the American Revolution began? Yes, you believe the Revolution started on Lexington Green, when Capt John Parker's men were shot down by the redcoats - but surprisingly, it did not began there. Nor did it begin with the fighting at the North Bridge in Concord a few hours later. You'll learn the name of the obscure place the revolution REALLY began.
Why were some local peasants (as they were viewed by the British army) able to break the British line at Concord's North Bridge - in less than two minutes? Some original historical research suggests why, and the answer, unlike the answer to most historical questions, is one word. At a LibertySeed, you'll find out what that one word is.
You will be surprised by how much is known of that first day of the American Revolution, a day that some believe is the most important day in American history.
