                Patriots’ Day should be celebrated in many more states of this country than in Massachusetts, Wisconsin, and in Maine.  In Maine the holiday is spelled Patriot’s Day.  Patriot Day, another holiday is celebrated by all Americans as a national holiday as a result of the 911 terrorist attack.

                Since Patriots’ Day is celebrated always around this time of year, it is meaningful to say that this holiday is in honor of the battles of Lexington and Concord, which began the Revolutionary War in this country.  The saga of our winning the American Revolution is one of grit and spirit in our national ideal of freedom for all.  Most of the military success goes to General George Washington and his leadership.  This is noted in history many times:  but on one time, as his escape with his men, horses, and supplies across the Erie River out of Brooklyn, New York to Manhattan without the loss of a single man.  General Washington was seen quite often praying to G-d.  This is to me the most inspiring story of all for without the help of the Lord, history would have been quite different and General Washington’s mission for a free United States would certainly have failed.

                It is most interesting to read the history of countries and of wars.  Because I, too, was so impressed with General George Washington’s military strategies, the sense of spirit, and caring for his troops, and his unfailing devotion to his country, I have chosen General George Washington to be a major character in my next novel.  Please remember to read my blogs on www.thegraylinghiddentruthpoems.com and www.CherylFreiersite.wordpress.com, and read my books:  The Grayling Hidden Truth Poems, The Wild Grasses Hidden Truth Poems, Blossoms Around The Circles Hidden Truth Poems, and The Day Of The Hidden Truth Poems; and my storybooks:  The Shepherd Boy And The Sheep Alphabet, and Open Up The Gates To Jerusalem For The Queen Of Sheba.  Thank you.  Cheryl Freier (CherRy)
