"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value."   T Paine

I just went through all the points Fred made.    8 minutes total.  This would be a great way to start any Appleseed, indeed!!!!!!  Forget about the idea of doing 1st strike.  Get the shooters primed for the weekend.  And get them to the line for the Red Coats.

   That's because it's on the Instructor's board, Shooterer.

   Be patient. That's your next step in the program! :) O0

   Thanks for bringing this up, coly.

   I posted those comments to help our instructors get the real message of 4/19 across - it's not just facts, people, dates - it's much more than that.

   I anticipated our instructors would interpolate the points into the appropriate spots in the Story. I never considered giving it all together, as a unit - but will try it at the next AS, and see how it works...
"Ready to eat dirt and sweat bore solvent?" - Ask me how to become an RWVA volunteer!

      "...but he that stands it now, deserves the thanks of man and woman alike..."   Paine

     "If you can read this without a silly British accent, thank a Revolutionary War veteran" - Anon.

     "We have it in our power to begin the world over again" - Thomas Paine

     What about it, do-nothings? You heard the man, jump on in...

Paul Revere's ride being passed to Hardware this weekend  :)

Shooterer, I think we have an orange hat  somewhere  O0

Edit: I took another look at the link, and read Fred's more personal touch on the history.

I always liked learning about the individual. Colycat I remember back last June when you picked a couple of obscure guys out of a history book and told their story......

Fred:
Could I talk to you sometime?
I have a few questions about the Strikes presented at the shoots.

I did the article in Dillon's Blue Press and am working on another for a different market.

You can e-mail me at meanole AT gmail.com to set up a time. 
Sincerely,
ACP230
