Project Appleseed is an activity of The Revolutionary War
Veterans Association, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization,
dedicated to teaching every American our shared heritage and
history as well as traditional rifle marksmanship skills.
Our volunteer instructors travel across the country
teaching those who attend about the difficult choices, the
heroic actions, and the sacrifices that the Founders made on
behalf of modern Americans, all of whom are their progeny.
Our heritage program vividly portrays the Battles of
Lexington and Concord with the kind of care and immediacy
that is absent from most formal schooling. Modern listeners
are confronted with the danger, the fear, and the
heartbreaking separations that arose out of the choices made
on April 19th, 1775. They are also reminded of the
marksmanship skills and masterful organization that
ultimately helped set the colonists on the path to success.
Our rifle marksmanship program complements our history and
heritage. We teach the traditional American marksmanship
skills. There are, however, several aspects of our
marksmanship program that deserve special mention. We are
particularly proud of our younger attendees. In accordance
with applicable local laws, young people with sufficient
maturity are welcome to the Appleseed line and can, with
parental permission, join the cadre. The RWVA recognizes
the importance of introducing a wide cross section of
Americans to their marksmanship heritage. Finally, an important aspect
of our marksmanship program is called Adaptive Appleseed.
Project Appleseed is serious about bringing our heritage and
marksmanship instruction to everyone so we've committed
ourselves to adapting Appleseed to the special needs of
those who have certain physical challenges.
