Patriots’ Day

Robert E. WrightRobert E. Wright ” Today is Patriots’ Day, the Third Monday in April. It is the birthday, adjusted to create three-day weekends, of New England’s de facto independence, the day in 1775 its people finally took up arms to thwart their Father Country’s heavy paternalist ambitions. The celebration carries our minds back to that day, to the acts of our great deliverance, and marks the beginning of another year of our national life; and reminds us that the Republic of America is 247 years old.”
