Sowing the Seeds of Freedom by LibertySeed: “A Shot Heard ‘Round The World”

GRAND BLANC — The Grand Blanc Arbor#790 is hosting the retelling of one of the greatest stories in American History at the Grand Blanc Heritage Museum.

We all learn about the Revolutionary War in school: where it was fought, who fired the first shots and Paul Revere’s famous ride. But is what we learn in school the whole story, or in some cases, even the real story? LibertySeed is a group of volunteers from The Revolutionary War Veterans Association that shed new light on the story of how our nation was born — the story which historians have discovered. Speakers will bring the events of April 19, 1775, a day some call the most important day in American history to life. Along the way, they’ll reveal some historical facts that might surprise you, like:

• Who fired the famous “Shot Heard Round the World?”

• What’s the name of the obscure location where the Revolutionary War really began?

• How were colonists able to break the British line at Concord’s North Bridge in under two minutes?

LibertySeed events are suitable for all ages and the public is welcome for this free event at 7 p.m. on Feb.15 at the Grand Blanc Heritage Museum (Grand Blanc City Hall), 203 E. Grand Blanc Road. Limited seating so please reserve your free tickets at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sowing-seeds-of-freedom-with-liberty-seed-the-shot-heard-round-the-world-tickets42792411254?aff=eac2 P.S.
