The Minute Men: Neighbors in Arms

Every week on Sunday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from now until October 31, 2022

Time: 11:00 AM, 2:00 PM

Have you ever wondered what it was like for a minute man? This 30 minute guided tour will be led by a park ranger through the historic Hartwell Tavern of Lincoln, MA. This is where two minute men named John and Isaac Hartwell lived. The ranger will walk you through the life of minutemen and help you discover the motivations and realities they faced. And for those interested, there will be a musket firing demonstration. If you have a hearing condition, keep in mind that the muskets could hurt your ears, so please use caution. 

Parker’s Revenge: The New Evidence

Saturday, October 1, 2022

Time: 2:30 to 4:00 pm

Archaeologist Dr. Meg Walters will discuss the details and findings of The Parker’s Revenge Archaeology Project. After years of research, the project has been able to identify the location of a key Lexington battle that happened on April 19, 1775. 

“Park Ranger Jim Hollister, joined by His Majesty’s 10th Regiment of Foot and the Lexington Minute Men, will lead a walk out to the scene of action. The reenactors will demonstrate how, based on the project’s findings, we believe the battle was fought. This program will feature musket firing.”

As mentioned above in the other event, make sure to use caution when attending if you have any hearing conditions or concerns. 


Barrett Farm Open House

Ready to immerse yourself in the history of the minutemen? Join the National Park Service in bringing history to life. Starting at the Barrett House, you can learn about the military preparations which helped the colonies in the Revolutionary War. Colonel James Barrett of Concord was responsible for all the military supplies in late 1774 to 1775. This is where history was made and 248 years later, you can still visit this spot and learn its history.
