Was ihr unternehmen werdet
We will start the tour on Lexington Green where many of the early activities that began the American Revolution took place. We will walk to several historic sites surrounding the Green, some well known and some not. I will tell often told and some untold stories about events that transpired that day. We will then head toward Concord, making several stops along the way at locations whose tales will surprise many, since they are contrary to what might have been learned in school. In Concord we will visit the Old North Bridge and learn about heroic and tragic events that took place at the bridge and surrounding area. Time permitting, we will stop at the historic Colonial Inn for refreshments before continuing back to Lexington. This return leg will feature some of the events that took place during the British retreat with stops at several little known but very significant points with their own stories to tell. We will conclude the tour where we started, on Lexington Green, and learn what took place during the continuing British retreat to Boston. I hope that guests will gain an appreciation of the actions taken on both sides that day when a group of poorly trained and poorly equipped but highly motivated farmers and trades people opposed the might of the greatest military force in the world at that time.
Hi, I am Fred. I have lived in the Minuteman area of Massachusetts for over 50 years where I became totally immersed in the history of the Battle of Lexington and Concord, a pivotal event in American History. My interest led to the production of three LPs of period music for the Bicentennial. To prepare these albums I scoured the local libraries and historical societies for the information I needed. My research throughout the years has led to many fascinating discoveries about the events of the day. I would like to share these historical facts with you, including anecdotes, secrets, stories, legends and popular misconceptions that I uncovered. I think you will be surprised and entertained by these tales that don't often get told.
Was enthalten ist
I will drive from site to site in a car or van depending on the number of participants.

Wo ihr sein werdet
We will be visiting a dozen sites of significance in Lexington, Lincoln and Concord, some well known (Lexington Green, Old North Bridge) but some often overlooked (Merriam's Corner, Bloody Angle, Fiske Hill, Hayward's Well, Minuteman Boulder, others) plus one site I will not name because the name will give away it's surprising story. Time permitting, we will also stop at the historic Concord Inn for some refreshments midway on the tour.
