Modern Day Revolution

Today in Massachusetts is a holiday deemed "Patriot's Day."

This is a day meant to commemorate the Battles of Lexington and Concord, fought on April 19, 1775. where the infamous "Shot Heard Round the World" was fired. This "Shot" of course was the shot that killed the first British soldier as the British marched over the Old North Bridge into the town of Concord. This battle between the British soldiers and the American Colonists (the "Minutemen") signaled the beginning of the American Revolution.


Patriot's Day is also a day to honor the brave American Colonists who refused to be governed by principles which they did not believe in, or to be lead by a powerless figurehead. That spirit lives on today at Local Motors in a modern day revolution against the paradigm of auto manufacturing created by large corporations.

Therefore, although we honor our American patriots past and present, taking a day like today as a day of rest admist the beginning of a modern revolution wasn't the appropriate way to honor them, so we were open for business.

After all, where would we be if our brethren took a day of rest in the early morning hours of April 19, 1775?
