Longmont, CO – -( Revolutionary War Veterans Association to hold a “Ladyseed” March 9-10, in Elon, NC, combining American heritage and marksmanship in a friendly “ladies only” environment.

A Ladyseed is a RWVA Appleseed Project event designed specifically for ladies with female instructors. The women who attend a Ladyseed event will learn much more than how to fire a rifle, they will also learn American heritage and the history of how women actively aided in the fight on April 19, 1775.

Adena Sherman-Adams, the Designated Shoot Boss for this event and a RWVA State Coordinator said: “Before attending a Ladyseed I believed I had a decent idea about marksmanship and our heritage. What I learned and gained from the weekend was so much more than that. The women of the Revolutionary War took it upon themselves to aid in the fight for our freedom whether it was dressing up as men to raise arms or running through a field with hidden gun powder while being fired upon. The weekend though isn’t just about the marksmanship and heritage, it is about remembering why we have the freedoms we have today and the friendships you gain along the way.”

Many ladies walk away from an Appleseed event with a renewed sense of their country and of themselves. For many women a rifle range is unfamiliar territory and can seem daunting, but the instruction at a Ladyseed event creates a comfortable learning environment.

The core of The Appleseed Project is heritage. The Appleseed Program is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the teaching of American heritage, history, and traditional marksmanship skills. Our instructor teams travel the country educating everyone about the difficult choices and heroic actions that our great founders made on behalf of us, their “posterity“.

Our heritage program brings the first two days of the Revolutionary War vividly into the modern day with the kind of care and immediacy that is absent from schooling today.

Appleseed is dedicated to bringing that day, those persons, and their stories to each and every American. They have much to teach us, and we have much to learn from them. These are our stories and in them is our hope for the future.

The way that we bring this history to life is through marksmanship instruction. Our rigorous two day program teaches all of the American marksmanship skills which were once common knowledge. Sling use, steps to firing the shot, body positions and control are all covered. Each skill is a part of the puzzle that when put together create success.

Shooters of all skill levels are successful with our program. Often it is the new woman shooter that outclasses the macho know it all! Women teaching women. Women sharing with women. The all women shoot provides an even greater opportunity for that success.
