Patriot's Day Battle

Patriot's Day is a Massachusetts holiday on which they commemorate the anniversary of the beginning battles of the Revolutionary War.  We live very close to Battle Road Trail, running from Lexington to Concord,  where some of the skirmishes of the war took place.  Anyhow, on Patriot's Day we went and watched the reenactments of the battle along Battle Road Trail.  Specifically we were first located at the "bloody angle" for any history buffs.  We were located right at the beginning, so were the first to see the British marching up.  It was pretty cute, as Will saw them coming through the woods and started yelling: "They're coming!  They're coming!".  Just call him Paul.  Anyhow, here's a few pics and videos for the curious.  :)

That little drummer boy was pretty impressive.

How cool is that??!!! I remember when we lived in TN, we lived near the Stone's River National Battlefield and we frequented it often. It was part of the Civil War.... I learned more from visiting there (museum and reenactments) than I ever did in the history books. We all loved being able to walk the exact trails that made history in our Nation. Thanks for sharing! Hugs, Grace
