                              IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
                             HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 46
                                 BY STATE AFFAIRS COMMITTEE
  1                               A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
  3        19, 1775.
  4    Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
  5        WHEREAS,  April  19,  1775, marks the date when the Massachusetts towns of
  6    Lexington and Concord were marched upon by British regulars in  an  effort  to
  7    confiscate the munitions stored there for the local militia; and
  8        WHEREAS,  near  the  hour  of 5 a.m., British troops numbering between six
  9    hundred and eight hundred men, encountered seventy-five  patriots,  under  the
 10    command  of  Captain Parker, at Lexington Green, where Captain Parker ordered,
 11    "Stand your ground! Don't fire unless fired upon; but if they mean to  have  a
 12    war, let it begin here."; and
 13        WHEREAS, the result was the "shot heard 'round the world" and by the day's
 14    end, the British troops had retreated from the field; and
 15        WHEREAS,  the  events of this day were the spark that ignited the passions
 16    of the colonial patriots resulting in the American Revolutionary War  and  the
 17    founding of a great nation; and
 18        WHEREAS, the states of Arkansas, Florida, Massachusetts, Missouri, Tennes-
 19    see  and Wisconsin celebrate April 19 as Patriot's Day each year, and in Maine
 20    and New Jersey, Patriot's Day is the third Monday in April; and
 21        WHEREAS, Patriot's Day is an opportunity to focus on the  historic  nature
 22    of our revolution and the sacrifices endured over the course of a great eight-
 23    year struggle leading to our independence celebrated on the Fourth of July.
 24        NOW,  THEREFORE,  BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the Second Regular Ses-
 25    sion of the Fifty-eighth Idaho Legislature, the House of  Representatives  and
 26    the  Senate  concurring  therein,  that  we proclaim April 19 of every year as
 27    Patriot's Day in the state of Idaho in commemoration of the opening events  of
 28    the  American  Revolutionary  War  and  the  struggle through which the nation
 29    passed in its early days to be established as the great  land  of  freedom  in
 30    which we live today.
