PLACE

The Battles of Lexington and Concord were the initial conflict sin the American Revolutionary War. On April 19, 1775, a force of British Army regulars marched from Boston to Concord to capture a cache of arms that was reportedly stored in the town. Forewarned of the British troop movements by Paul Revere and others, colonists from Concord and surrounding towns repulsed a British detachment at the Old North Bridge in Concord and forced the British troops to retreat. On the day of my visit, their were some British reenactors in Concord and they allowed me to take some photo.
