Important question

What was it that caused 5 companies of trained soldiers to turn tail and run from a bunch of farmers and shopkeepers at the Old North Bridge?

Answer: Well aimed and concentrated musket fire---the skill of marksmanship. This is where the heritage of the American rifleman began.

This nation was started by riflemen.

It is the responsibility of every American to pass along the tradition that started on that day---before it dies. Want to get started?

One way is to attend an Appleseed marksmanship clinic.

America is an idea. That idea only arose once in all of history. If it is lost here, it may never arise again. Think about it. We're not talking about the United States. There is a lot more at stake here than preserving the United States.
