Cool!  The ultimate "border raid!" Any insight as to how the story of Lexington and Concord, and the American Revolutionary War, are perceived in Canada? 
"Of liberty I would say that, in the whole plenitude of its extent, it is unobstructed action according to our will. But rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law,' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual."
-- Thomas Jefferson to Isaac H. Tiffany, 1819

I think many people here are largely ignorant on the subject of the American War for Independence. The story is extremely interesting in its own right, and really provides context for the wording of the Bill of Rights. I think the story is important for framing discussion of the 2nd Amendment ,which is very much, largely misunderstood here, as a result of media influences and a largely urban, anti-gun position.  I am not really certain that the telling of the story of Lexington and Concord is inappropriate, as at that time, democratic revolution began to sweep broadly across europe and the colonies, greatly influencing our history here, through the immigration of loyalists  and the concerns for "responsible government" etc,etc spawned  after the RW- i.e "Shot heard round the World". I would be greatly interested in other points of view on this.

On interesting side note, my oldest son use to watch a show called "Liberty Kids" on a US network we received on satellite. The show, a animated retelling of the Revolutionary War was actually pretty good, and he enjoyed it and watched it regularly. One day I was talking to my older brother by phone, and  after the call ended my son (~6yrs at the time) asked  who it was? I replied "That was your Uncle John, from British Columbia". He looked at me in absolute horror and asked "IS HE A REDCOAT???"

..The story will be told with a big emphasis on the lead up to April 19, 1775. We will tell, not drag out the three strikes hitting the guide posts needed but be efficient and effective in sending a message, the message. We will prepare some liberty orientated Canadian History that we are researching as of now to compliment our mission..

You might look into the United Empire Loyalists, who left the new US during or after the Revolution.  (I have some in my ancestry, as well as RW veterans.)  When they reached Canada, one of the first things they demanded was... to govern themselves.  And hence Ontario was born, as a split-off from Quebec.

ETA:  Well done!   :bow:

  The Instructors involved will be having a meeting to plan out what History we'll be covering and lay out a complete COF.

  Project Appleseed is crossing the boarder bringing our message to our Brothers and Sisters in Canada.

 Here's the direct link to sign up for the Ontario, Canada Appleseed Event.

 As mentioned by JW it's listed as Ontario, NY due to computer software issues.
 It is in Ontario, Canada.

 FYI.....there is ALSO an Appleseed Shoot scheduled in Ontario, NY in September, 2015 so please
 be sure you're signing up for the correct Ontario Event.

Gosh!  Talk about bravery,  you guys are the bomb.  I am terrified of going to Canada,  talk about behind the lines and enemy territory and all that.

My hat is off to you :)

But you do live in NY, so I guess you are braver than most.
"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

Residing in one of US's most northern outposts my whole life- I'm quite familiar with them and their bombardment tactics and strategy.

My advise when attacked by swarms of mosquitoes....


SURRENDER! 


There's no escape and nothing you do will beat them.  You will be bitten, drained and ultimately assimilated.
It will sting, it will itch.  Resistance is futile.

I've done quite a lot of training at Fort Drum in the past, and I thought the skeeters were big there, diesel fuel worked pretty good for awhile as a repellent, but they breeched that as well, they mutated and began to like it.
They would just drive you insane.
