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. :)
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: But I keep under my body and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, whenI have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. I COR 9: 24-27
