Happy 239th Anniversary

Happy 239th Anniversary (and to my wife, happy 28ty anniversary). If you, as an American citizen or as a legal resident alien, do not know of which event today is the 239th anniversary, you need to do checking up on this nation's history. Look up - The Shot Heard Round The World.

Did you look at the date, closely? I am willing to bet, that if you randomly selected a thousand American citizens and asked them: In what year did the American Revolution begin?, the majority would answer 1776 and if you asked them the specific date hostilities commenced most by far would say July 4, 1776. Of course, as you know, they would be wrong by a long shot as the war had already been under way for well over a year by then.

All the best,
