The Minuteman Park, one of our National Parks, is located between Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts. There are two different visitor centers, one at each end of the park. The visitor center at the Lexington end is by far the most interesting. They have a 30 minute video describing all the events surrounding the cry by Paul Revere that “The British are coming!” The video is an amazing creation incorporating a “theater-like” stage setting along with two video screens and a lighted map that shows the movements of British troops and Colonists. One of the video screens looks like a doorway into someone’s home and the person in the video speaks to another person “sitting on the stage.” The Concord visitor center has a different video shown on a flat screen TV. The park itself includes the actual road between Lexington and Concord where the British troops marched. It is a beautiful place to walk thru and to visit the tavern where costumed interpreters explain the history.
