Patriot's Day in Lexington, Concord
Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts, marked the anniversary of the beginning of the American Revolution with Patriot's Day events this morning. The first group of photos shows the 1775 confrontation between British troops and the Lexington militia on the Lexington Green as reenacted at dawn by the Lexington Minute Man Company and His Majesty's Tenth Regiment of Foot, 1st Foot Guard, 4th Foot Guard and 5th Foot Guard. Below the sign for the Lexington pancake breakfast are photos of Concord's Patriot's Day Parade near the North Bridge.
