Stepping in the footsteps of the colonists who took on the regulars was to step back in time. Realizing that the men who fought for freedom from the king are who allowed me to be able to be born in this country is beyond words.

If you want to get a feel of how it was at the start of the Revolutionary War then this is the place to be. On our second trip to the area we toured three buildings including the Monroe Tavern. What a great day! Each tour lasted a good hr. with a lot of facts and figures on the days events in April 1775! This whole area is packed with sites ,buildings, tours and two fantastic museums. Can't wait for my next visit. If you go, go early and plan to spend the whole day, you won't regret it!!

One can argue that April 19, 1775 was one of the biggest days in the history of the world, in good part because the battle fought here set Britain and its American colonies on diverging tracks from which there would be no turning back. This is now a peaceful park, but if you are walking around it try to picture the world-shaking confrontation that occurred here between relatively few, but determined, troops. The most moving part of this visit for me was standing across the street from the Green in front of the home of Jonathan Harrington (called a "witness house" because it was a witness to the historic events that happened here). Harrington, though badly wounded in the battle, dragged himself back to his front door to make sure his family was safe, and died at his wife's feet.

A moving experience helped by a very knowledgeable volunteer guide who was able to explain the events on that fateful day.
