Revolutionary War Image

Lexington Green was the first official conflict of the American Revolutionary War. Captain Parker and his militiamen faced the British army on this spot. “Stand your ground. Don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here” were the Captain’s immortal words to his men on the 19th of April in ’75.
