Project Appleseed teaching American history and rifle skills
McDONALD, Tennessee (WDEF)-Project Appleseed is a fully volunteer-run program that teaches about American history.
“On April 19, 1775, is when the battle of Lexington and Concord took place. When ordinary Americans stood up to the British crown, and we became Americans,” said Jeff Yeager.
Participants are taught fundamental rifle marksmanship skills that allow a rifleman to be accurate out of 400 yards. These rifle teachings were once commonly practiced in America. The mix of marksman training with historical revolutionary war teachings are done to make sure people don’t forget how this country gained its independence.
