The Conflict Ignites: Lexington and Concord
The Conflict Ignites: Lexington and Concord – 1 night (2 hours). The American poet Ralph Waldo Emerson called it “The Shot Heard Round the World,” when British troops marched into the Massachusetts countryside to seize stockpiled guns and supplies. They met resistance before dawn on April 19, 1775, in Lexington. From Lexington, the British moved to Concord to complete their mission. The American Revolution for Independence had begun. This class will include slides of the area where the battles took place, as well as replica uniforms and equipment from the period.
