April 18 named Patriots Day in Milton.


At its last meeting, Milton’s City Council was joined by the Sons of the American Revolution, Piedmont Chapter, in proclaiming Monday, April 18 “Patriots Day.”

The designation honored the brave patriots of April 12, 1775, who rode their horses through the Massachusetts countryside to warm fellow colonists British troops were coming.
