North Dakota Recognizes New Holiday


North Dakota has a new holiday on the books.

Today is officially known as Patriots’ Day.

Lawmakers passed a bill this session to commemorate the start of the American Revolutionary War and the battles of Lexington and Concord which happened 114 years before North Dakota achieved statehood.

There was a celebration at the capitol where members of the Bismarck Century High School Patriot Marching Band kicked off the event, performing patriotic songs in the Memorial Hall.

North Dakota is the fifth state to observe Patriots’ Day as an official state holiday.
