Project Appleseed has a resident State Coordinator in Maine. I learned on Wednesday that I have been awarded the job. The goal of Project Appleseed is to reconnect today's Americans with the history and heritage we should all hold dear. We teach the history of what happened on April 19, 1775, why those old patriots made the choices they made and why they made those choices. We teach were the revolution first began. It may not be where you think. We teach how it began which may also not be how you think. We know these things because our forefathers wrote it all down for us. We teach the history you never learned in school. Students often ask, "Why didn't we learn this in school? Good question.
We have no political agenda. The only politicians we talk about are those who were alive on April 19, 1775. Appleseed is open to all. We are a family activity.
We also teach marksmanship and firearm safety. We teach families, active duty military, law enforcement, home school groups and church groups. We teach the accumulated knowledge of 600 years of rifle marksmanship. Everybody finishes the weekend with a renewed sense of citizenship and improved marksmanship. We used a simulated military target and if you follow the instructions you might qualify as a "Rifleman". A Rifleman can reliably hit a target at 500 yards. We call it the "Rifleman's quarter mile".
