Inside Hartwell Tavern on the "Battle Road" from Lexington to Concord.   Hard Cider was the drink of choice here in the 1770s and one can only imagine the conversations as local farmers plotted … the American Revolution.

MinuteMan National Historical Park – Patriot Days!

Hanging out here in lovely Concord, MA with my most excellent old Pal Tom and his wife Diane. They live just down the street from Minuteman NHP where in many ways the Revolutionary War began.

This weekend and Monday the town celebrates "Patriot Days" with historical reenactments all over the area. Here at Hartwell Tavern on the Battle road Minutemen fought with retreating British troops.
