Patriot  Day
Trade Center - 9-11 - The Pentagon
Patriot Day is observed on September 11th, the anniversary of the Terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001.
Patriot's  Day
Battle of Lexington and Concord   -   Oberserved by some states.
Patriot's Day is either the Third Monday in April, or April 19th; commemorating the battle of Lexington and Concord.

Last updated June, 2007     

Patriot's Day
Commemorating the Battle of Lexington and Concord that began on April 19, 1775 where the famous ride of Paul Revere warns the colonists to deploy the Colonial minutemen  for the confrontation with the British. Patriot's Day is an official state holiday in Massachusetts (Third Monday of April) and Maine (April 19th) and is a school observance only in Wisconsin. Various groups around the nation will observe Patriot's Day as well, such as a program put on by the Esther Reed Chapter of the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution in Spokane, Washington that includes a proclamation from the Mayor.          The TimeLine
Patriot Day

Remembering the victims and heroes of the Terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Remembering those who died, those who survived, and those who lost loved ones in the attack. Remembering specifically the heroes who, also, every day risk their lives saving others. Remembering also those who "stepped up" to assisting in the rescue and recovery and those across America who traveled to join the recovery efforts and those who contributed financially and/or to America's healing.

The remembrance begins at 2001              September 11, 2001 Tribute        .

Patriot Day
Patriot Day

Remembering the victims and heroes of the Terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Remembering those who died, those who survived, and those who lost loved ones in the attack. Remembering specifically the heroes who, also, every day risk their lives saving others. Remembering also those who "stepped up" to assisting in the rescue and recovery and those across America who traveled to join the recovery efforts and those who contributed financially and/or to America's healing. Patriot Day also remembers all patriots of our country, remembering the vulnerability of liberty in a free society.
Comment Some say that the day should only be for the victims and heroes of that day. We did not declare a holiday for the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, nor did we for the Oklahoma City bombing. The September 11, 2001 attacks were much different. America was attacked by an adversary. America was attacked; the individual victims were not specific targets. The Attacks on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon drew Americans together as had no other event since the Attack on Pearl Harbor, beginning World War II. Patriot Day remembers the victims and gives honor to American heroes wherever they perform and whenever through the history of America.
2001 Attack The International Trade Center Towers and the Pentagon were attacked, by terrorists who hijacked airliners then, flying them into the buildings, on September 11, 2001.

PoetPatriot "9-11 Tribute" Page        .

2001 Towers
As the work day began the first airliner flies into one of the New York City's World Trade Center towers.  Believing it to an accident while wondering if it could be terrorists, the wonders are confirmed when a second airliner flies into the second tower just minutes later.
2001 Pentagon
A third plane flies into the Pentagon, in Northern Virginia more civilians and of course some of the military personnel stationed there were killed in the collision.
2001 Planes
"Let's Roll"
A fourth plane is hijacked somewhat later after passengers had already heard (mostly by cellular phones) about the earlier attacks. When the hijackers seized the plane the passengers put into motion a plan to overtake the hijackers to prevent another designed crash. One passenger on the phone with his wife he loves her. The last words she hears from her husband is overheard when he turns to the other passengers saying, "Let's Roll!" It appears that the passengers overtook the hijack terrorists, sending the plane down into a rural Pennsylvanian field, killing all aboard. The fourth target was believed to have been either the U.S. Capital building or the White House.
2001 Terrorists Each airliner was boarded by 5 or 6 Al Qaeda terrorist hijackers. Each team of terrorists were given specific high profile targets in the United States.
2001 Lost Nearly 3,000 people of all colors, religions and creeds were killed in the attacks. Americans and visitors from over 60 different nations were killed by a clandestine enemy. Terrorism has arrived in America. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor killed just short of 2,500, now only the second worse attack on U.S. territory.
2001 October
Patriot Day
U.S. House Joint Resolution (Public Law 107-89), passed without one dissenting vote (407-0), requesting the President to declare September 11th each year as "Patriot Day".
2001 December
Patriot Day
Joint Resolution, Public Law 107-89, passed by both houses of Congress was approved and signed by President George Bush on December 18, 2001, designating September 11 of each year as "Patriot Day."
Controversy Some take objection to calling the day Patriot Day saying the observance is for the victims and and has nothing to do with patriotism and patriots. Some greeting card companies have added to the controversy by selling Patriot Day Cards. Hallmark chose to not produce a card for the holiday.   

 See my comment above

2002 September
President George Walker Bush makes the first of yearly proclamations of Patriot Day, on September 4, 2002.

      "On this first observance of Patriot Day, we remember and honor those who perished in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. We will not forget the events of that terrible morning nor will we forget how Americans responded in New York City, at the Pentagon, and in the skies over Pennsylvania -- with heroism and selflessness; with compassion and courage; and with prayer and hope. We will always remember our collective obligation to ensure that justice is done, that freedom prevails, and that the principles upon which our Nation was founded endure."
                          - President George Walker Bush.

In the proclamaition the president asks all Americans to observe the day with flags flown at half-staff and participation in a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., Eastern Daylight Time. The time of the moment of silence is the time the first airplane flies into the first tower.

2003 September
President George Walker Bush makes the yearly proclamation of Patriot Day on September 4, 2003.

      "Two years ago, more than 3,000 innocent people lost their lives when a calm September morning was shattered by terrorists driven by hatred and destruction.
      On that day, and in its aftermath, we saw the greatness of America in the bravery of victims; in the heroism of first responders who laid down their lives to save others; in the compassion of people who stepped forward to help those they had never met; and in the generosity of millions of Americans who enriched our country with acts of service and kindness. Since that day, we have seen the greatness of America further demonstrated in the courage of our brave men and women in uniform who have served and sacrificed in Afghanistan, in Iraq, and around the world to advance freedom and prevent terrorist attacks on America."
                          - President George Walker Bush.

2004 September
President George Walker Bush makes the yearly proclamation of Patriot Day on September 10, 2004.

      "Three years ago, our country was ruthlessly attacked, and more than 3,000 innocent people lost their lives. We will always remember the victims: sons and daughters, husbands and wives, dads and moms, family members, co-workers, and friends. And we will always be inspired by the heroism and decency of our fellow citizens on that day. Police, firefighters, emergency rescue personnel, doctors, nurses, and many others risked their own lives to save the lives of their fellow citizens. They demonstrated the great character and bravery of our Nation, and they embody the great spirit of America.
      Since September 11th, America has fought a relentless war on terror around the world. We are staying on the offensive in this war -- striking the terrorists abroad so we do not have to face them here at home. We pray that God watch over our brave men and women in uniform and all who are waging this war and working to keep America safe. And we pray for their families. In the face of danger, America is showing its character. Three years after the attack on our country, Americans remain strong and resolute, patient in a just cause, and confident of the victory to come."
                          - President George Walker Bush.

2005 September
President George Walker Bush makes the yearly proclamation of Patriot Day on September 9, 2005.

      "Four years have passed since our country was brutally attacked on a quiet September morning. On that day, thousands of innocent lives were taken from us. The victims and the families who lost loved ones remain in the hearts and prayers of our Nation. We also remember the courage of the firefighters, police officers, emergency rescue personnel, and scores of private citizens who showed us the true meaning of heroism and demonstrated our resolve to the world.
      The mission that began on September 11, 2001, continues. Today, we see the virtue of the September 11th heroes embodied in our military personnel, who are taking the fight to our enemies and helping to keep us safe at home. Thousands of other Americans, from intelligence analysts to border guards to countless others, are doing vital work to help defend America and prevent future attacks. We are grateful to all of these men and women and to their families for their service and sacrifice. We honor those who have lost their lives defending our freedom, and we pray that God comfort their families. We pledge that we will not rest until we have won the war on terror."
                          - President George Walker Bush.

Purpose     Patriot Day is a day of remembrance of the victims of September 11, 2001. The innocent, the heroism of the first responders who laid down their lives to save others, those who continued helping in though risk to themselves, those who stepped forward for those they had never met, and the generosity of American citizens across the nation who exhibited service and kindness.  President George Walker Bush had extended the honors of Patriot Day to those who serve in Afghanistan and Iraq to advance freedom and prevent terrorist attacks on Americans.
     Because of the heroes of that day, our everyday heroes; firemen, police, and the military will be honored as well as a spin off of the holiday honors. Those that prove themselves a hero by stepping in to save another will be remembered as well.

Patriot's Day
1670 September
Fast Day
Before Patriot's Day, was the religious holiday "Fast Day" and the first proclamation of it was in Boston on September 8th 1670. Massachusetts replaced it with Patriot's Day as also did Maine. New Hampshire continued it until 1991 when it was replaced with Civil Rights Day in January which was later replaced with Martin Luther King Day in 1999.
Fast Day was "A day of public fasting and prayer" that became a tradition in the New England States. It's origin is found in observances of prayer and repentance. In the early days of the colonies proclamations by Royal Governors were made for the observance by attending church, fasting, and abstaining from secular activities.
1775 April
L&C Battle
General Thomas Gage, British Commander in Chief of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, on the evening of April 18, 1775 received orders to take control of the colonies. Gage ordered Lt Col. Francis Smith to locate and destroy the Colonist's war supplies in Concord. Lt. Col. Francis Smith was also instructed to arrest John Hancock and Samuel Adams.
1775 April
L&C Battle
Lt Col. Francis Smith was to carry out his orders in secret, but learning of the plans Doctor Joseph Warren alerts Paul Revere and Henry Dawes to warn the colonists of Lexington and concord; the famous ride of Paul Revere. Upon confirmation of the route, by day or by sea, Doctor Joseph Warren signals Revere and Dawes by lighting the lantern in Boston's Olde North Church.
Revere's Ride "Listen my children and you shall hear of the midnight ride of Paul Revere..." Longfellow's poem, though inaccurate, immortalized Paul Revere. The Grant Wood painting perpetuated the legend. Actually there were others who made the ride as well. The most known is Henry Dawes. Another was Samuel Prescott. Paul Revere did not complete the ride as he was captured by the British before gaining much distance.  Interesting enough, Paul Revere added to the inaccuracies in print and a poem depicting the Boston Massacre, helping to turn more colonists against the British. 
For a more accurate account of the ride, check out the poem "Liberty Ride of Dawes, Revere" by Roger W Hancock.
1775 April
L&C Battle
Patriot Day
Patriot's Day commemorates the battle of Lexington and Concord that was fought beginning on April 19, 1775.   See also the American Revolution TimeLine
1775 April
L&C Battle
Paul Revere rode 16 miles from the Olde North Church in Boston to Lexington warning of the arrival of the British who showed during the dawn of April 19, 1775. Lexington on this day is where the Minutemen and British confronted each other on the green where no one knew who or from which side but all heard the first shot, "the shot heard round the world."
1775 May
As a result of the aggression shown by the British in attacking Lexington and Concord the Continental Congress declared war against Great Britain on May 15th, 1775.
1781 October
L&C Battle
The Battle of Lexington and Concord ends with Cornwallis surrendering to George Washington on October 19, 1781.
1783 War ends A formal treaty with Great Britain was signed in 1783 officially ending the Revolutionary War.
~ ~ Sons of the American Revolution in Massachusetts were instrumental in the recognition of Patriot Day.
1860 April
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote "The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere" as a fun piece to interest young students in the history of America. After the poem gained such wide spread popularity he expressed regret at the inaccuracies, having taken poetic license.
1886 Marathon The first Boston Marathon is ran as part of the celebration of Patriot's Day. It becomes a major event often overshadowing the events of the Revolutionary remembrances.
Ranking as one of the most prestigious road racing events, the Boston Marathon is the world's oldest annual marathon.  The Boston Marathon is organized by the Boston Athletic Association.
2006 October
"Liberty Ride of Dawes Revere" is written by Roger W Hancock, the PoetPatriot, as a more accurate account of the the famous ride of Paul Revere.
