On This Day, April 2

On this day, Friday, April 2, 1976, the Bicentennial Muster began at Boxwell. It was the first big event after the resignation of Ward Akers and the first opportunity for the Council to show they could still do great things. Over 8000 people attended the event, which included muskets and fishing and other Scouting activities. The highlight though was the creation of the word “LIBERTY” from the participants.
