From such inauspicious beginnings to the greatest nation. How a few brave men so thirst for freedom that they would risk it all. Now, all these years later it is sad to think how much we take our freedom for granted. The patriotic words on...More

This is the place where the great American Revolutionary War started (though folks from Concord may disagree). There's a few markers but otherwise its just another public park. A few kids were playing frisbee on this hallowed ground when we visited. Stop by the nearby...More

History abounds in the area and the Greens are at the center of it. Where the 300 British marched early one morning in 1775 and met some 120 colonials standing on the green. An unknown shot rang out and the British shot down a dozen...More

the green is where the local militia gathered on April 18-19, 1775 on their way to Concord to fend off the Brits. There is nothing much to the green except the great history of the place.

Wonderful and historic. A must see, make sure to walk around the town and visit the museums. Lexington is rich in history, beautiful and peaceful.

Made a quick visit here on a very hot day. Really enjoyed seeing where the war for American independence began. Traffic is heavy in the area, be sure to use the crosswalks. Directional signage from the highway could be better, but no other complaints.

We were planning on walking around the green on our own, but a guide was there providing some information. His accent was rather strong (Boston) and it made it difficult for my kids to understand him, but I thought it was great. We then looked...More

You will appreciate the history of this site even more, as it is recounted by the Guides dressed in period clothing, who walk about the green. They really bring the story to life!
