Það sem verður gert

We will start the tour on Lexington Green, one of the best known landmarks of that fateful day when the American Revolution began. We will recount stories about that day, some familiar and many not that well known, like the house where Paul Revere was told to be quite as he was spreading the alarm.

We will then head toward Concord, making several stops along the way at locations with many other surprising tales that may be contrary to popular accounts.

In Concord we will visit the Old North Bridge and learn about heroic and tragic events that took place at the bridge and surrounding area.

On the return leg we will visit several little known but very significant sites with their own stories to tell. We will complete the adventure where we started, on Lexington Green, to talk about the horrific British retreat to Boston.

I hope that guests will gain a new appreciation of that historic day, when a group of poorly trained and poorly equipped, but highly motivated farmers and tradespeople stood up to the greatest military force in the world.

I have lived in the Minuteman area of Massachusetts for over 50 years and I have become totally immersed in the history of the Battle of Lexington and Concord, a pivotal event in American History. My interest led to the production of three LPs of period music for the Bicentennial. To prepare these albums I scoured the local libraries and historical societies for information. My research has led to many fascinating discoveries about the events of the day. I would like to share these with you, including anecdotes, secrets, stories, legends and popular misconceptions that I uncovered. I think you will be surprised and entertained by these tales that don't often get told.

Staðsetning

We will be visiting a dozen sites of significance in Lexington, Lincoln and Concord, some well known (Lexington Green, Old North Bridge) but some often overlooked (Merriam's Corner, Bloody Angle, Fiske Hill, Hayward's Well, Minuteman Boulder, others) plus a site I will not name because it will give away it's surprising story. Time permitting, we will also stop at the historic Colonial Inn in Concord for some refreshments midway on the tour.

Fred gave us a great tour of Lexington and Concord. He was very accommodating when I had to adjust our schedule. Me, my husband, 9 yr old daughter, and 11 yr old son all learned a lot about the history related to area. It was a pretty in-depth tour so great for history buffs and casual learnings alike.

Wow. Wow wow wow. What a WONDERFUL experience. If you're considering other tours -- just stop and book this one. Fred is such a special person who goes above and beyond in so many ways to make this tour special. We learned so much and what we already knew before was brought to light. He has wonderful artwork to show along the way that is also really helpful. The whole tour is thoughtfully planned and has a really wonderful "non-rehearsed" style that is so refreshing to a group tour. I just can't imagine another tour being better than this one. Book right away!

This is the most learning in a few hours I've had in years! Fred takes you on a journey retracing the very steps of important historical figures and events. The tour is very well planned out by the host and I was intrigued throughout the experience. Fred is extremely knowledgable, helpful and accommodating. He answered all my questions and even went out of his way to give me ride to the train station. I came out of the tour with a better understanding and appreciation of history. I highly recommend this trip to everyone!
