What Is Patriot's Day?

Before we explore the best patriotic movies to watch on Pure Flix, let's briefly explore the origins of Patriot's Day. The holiday's roots go back to the American Revolution. History has more:

On April 19, 1775, the Battles of Lexington and Concord kicked off the colonists’ fight for independence from Great Britain. Just two months after Parliament declared Massachusetts to be in a state of rebellion, the brave residents of the colony took up arms and went to battle for independence — eventually leading to the creation of the United States of America.

In the late 1800s, Massachusetts Gov. Frederic T. Greenhalge decided to add Patriot's Day to the calendar in an effort to recall the battles that help free the colonies, and the rest is history. You can read more about it here.
