Project Appleseed on Fox & Friends, Mon August 30th

I'm an volunteer with Project Appleseed, and wanted to share this information. If you aren't familiar with our program, be sure to tune it Monday morning for a live interview on national television. Here's the official press release:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tune in to Fox & Friends on the Fox News Channel this Monday August 30th, 2010 during the 8:00 a.m. hour to hear an engaging success story about how the Revolutionary War Veterans Association (RWVA) is teaching early American history and rifle marksmanship through a nationwide, all-volunteer program called Project Appleseed. Times may vary. Please check your local listings.

Since its inception in 2006, the RWVA has doubled the number of Appleseed clinics and attendees served each year. This year, at least one thousand clinics will be conducted across the country. The exponential growth and quality of instruction has caught the attention of national media – making this upcoming interview the third to offer nationwide coverage during the past thirty days.

At each Appleseed, Americans discover things about their heritage they never knew, as they hear the story of the events of April 19th, 1775 - the one they never heard before - historically accurate, inspiring, encouraging. They also learn the answer to four questions every American should be able to answer:

1. When and where was the American Revolution fought and won? (The answer, directly from a Founder, will astound you!)

2. When and where did the Revolutionary War break out? (Not at Lexington, not at Concord, but at an obscure place few have ever heard of - until they come to an Appleseeed.)

3. What caused the professional British Army to break and run at the North Bridge, after exchanging gunfire with colonial farmers and blacksmiths - for two minutes? (We give you the numbers that answer that question.)

4. Last but definitely not least, we'll answer the question which has so bedeviled historians for two centuries: Who fired the first shots at Lexington? (Yes, and we'll offer convincing proof in the form of historical facts.)

About the Revolutionary War Veterans Association
The mission of the Revolutionary War Veterans Association is to encourage civic participation, preserve the heritage of rifle marksmanship and to develop an understanding and appreciation of our nation’s founding. Project Appleseed brings about RWVA's mission across the country through two-day clinics that teach everyday Americans about their heritage and rifle marksmanship fundamentals.

The rifle marksmanship portions of the clinics are devoted to developing marksmanship skills that allow students to shoot rifles safely and accurately out to five hundred yards, a distance traditionally known as the “American Rifleman's Quarter Mile”. Students are taught the six steps to firing a shot, proper sling usage, Natural Point of Aim, proper positions of standing, sitting and prone, and how to diagnose and correct common shooting errors. The history lectures at each clinic highlight the inspiring stories of colonial Americans on the day of April 19th, 1775 – the day of the historic battles of Lexington and Concord. Project Appleseed clinics are family-friendly, safe and fun.

The Revolutionary War Veterans Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization headquartered in North Carolina. For more information, visit our website at Appleseed Project Home.

Women, kids under 21, and military shoot free, and recently, law enforcement has been added to the growing list of those who shoot free.
