Patriots' Day

April 19

All-Day Event

Patriots were colonists who wanted independence from British rule. Most hoped to find peaceful ways to settle their differences with England. When the British decided to look for Samuel Adams and John Hancock, who were hiding in Concord, Paul Revere and Billy Dawes rode through the night warning other Patriots in New England. The American Revolution began when the first shots were fired at Lexington on April 19, 1775. Each side said the other fired first. Patriots' Day was established to mark the beginning of the Revolutionary War. Enacted August 30, 2001, from the 2001 Laws of Wisconsin, Act 16 budget bill. - See more at: http://eis.dpi.wi.gov/eis_observe#sthash.88hFqyq3.dpuf Back to Calendar
