April 19, 1775

"Stand your ground; don't fire unless fired upon; but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here."
Captain John Parker, Battle of Lexington

What a great day!
This one that should be a national holiday!

I couldn't agree more. Spilling ink on a document isn't the same as shedding blood on the green. If ever we should consider national holidays as representing the commitment and integrity of our forebears, April 19th should be the lead-off.
