Town of Lexington Massachusetts
An unforgettable journey awaits your clients in Lexington and Concord, as they relive history on a tour they’ll never forget! They’ll sit back and relax, while one of our professional costumed step-on guides transports them back in time to April 19, 1775. First, they’ll learn about the notable sites and historic houses around Lexington Battle Green, where “the first blood was spilt in the dispute with Great Britain,” as George Washington wrote in his diary. In that short skirmish, 77 Militia faced 700 British Regulars. Eight colonists lost their lives and 10 were wounded. Two British soldiers were also injured. After the battle, Samuel Adams exclaimed to John Hancock, “What a glorious morning for America!” And so it began…
The tour continues east on the Battle Road through Minuteman National Historical Park, as you trace the steps of the British as they marched toward Concord. You’ll stop at Paul Revere’s Capture Site, or another notable site inside the park. It’s up to you!
Before arriving in Concord, guests’ will take a brief “detour” into the 1800s, passing through the neighborhood where American literary giants Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau all lived.
The trip culminates at the Old North Bridge, a truly majestic site where your guests will learn about the Battle of Concord – a much more successful effort for the colonists! Finally, on the way back to Lexington, your guide will continue to paint a vivid picture of what the long march back to Boston must have been like for the British.
