“If they mean to have a war, let it begin here!” ~ Captain John Parker at Lexington Green
April 19, 1775 – One of the most pivotal days of the American Revolution. Dr. Joseph Warren dispatched Paul Revere and William Dawes to ride into the countryside to warn of British plans to arrest Sam Adams and John Hancock, as well as their intentions to capture powder and artillery in Concord. The events that ensued, and the blood in which was shed, would be a no-turning-back point for America’s efforts to gain independence.
Pour yourself a glass of your favorite spirit and follow Battle Road between Concord and Lexington – from North Bridge and the site of the “Shot Heard Round the World”, to Paul Revere’s capture site, all the way to the British retreat back toward Boston.
