Post Falls Liberty Seeds

We all learn about the Revolutionary War in school; where it was fought, who fired the first shots, and Paul Revere’s famous ride. Is what we learn in school the whole story or even the real story?

The Revolutionary War Veterans Association’s, Andy and Reina Netzel will shed light on the story of how our nation was born—the story that historians have discovered. This all-ages program covers the birth of our nation and the events surrounding the battles of Lexington and Concord.
