Yes, it’s  hard to believe but the annual Battle Road living history event at Minute Man National Historical Park is less than 4 months away. Scheduled as a two-day event on April 17 & 18, 2010 – it’s never too early to make sure you’ll be ready!

For the upcoming season, there are some new clothing restrictions and event changes and the Park has created a special webpage to share event news and resources that will be of use to participants in this year’s Battle Road event and other living history events at the Park.

_DSC6362Were you one of the thousands of visitors who came to the living history event at Hartwell Tavern in June? Now We Are One: George Washington and the Birth of the Continental Army was a wildly popular event with both regular visitors, guests from out of town and recreational users of the park. The Friends would like to share the following photographs taken by Gerald Carignan who was kind enough to post his excellent photos online!

Thank you also to photographers, Jerry Callaghan, Julliette Carignan, and Park Ranger Monica Squires, who also took many incredible photographs. We’ll continue to feature additional pictures and slideshows throughout the summer!

And if you missed this incredible living history event, don’t worry, there is another one just around the corner! Minute Man National Historical Park is pleased to host HM 40th Regiment of Foot on Saturday, August 28th and Sunday, August 29th.

How did the British Army really function and fight during the American Revolution? Did they take the lessons of Lexington and Concord to heart? Visit Hartwell Tavern, temporarily established this weekend as the headquarters of the 40th Reg’t of Foot, a Revolutionary War period British Army reenactment unit, and learn about tactics, weapons, camp life, and armies on the march. Walking the trail, you may be surprized by a roving patrol, so please exercise due caution!

Taking their cue from the history books, linen and wool clad militia mustered in front of Hartwell Tavern in Lincoln shortly after noon today.  Carrying muskets and attired in eighteenth century clothing, these reenactor volunteers brought the actions of April 19, 1775 to life for the thousands of spectators that lined the stone walls along historic Battle Road.

The Battle Road reenactment, a tactical demonstration of the actions that occurred along the road from  Bloody Angle to Hartwell Tavern,  has been a signature event at Minute Man National Historical Park for many years.  As a special feature this year,  a local Medal of Honor recipient took honorary command of the colonial militia forces before they met the red-coated British Regulars for the afternoon’s battle reenactment. The  action quickly started and musket fire sounded throughout the woods and fields and smoke quickly filled the air, lingering along the road as the British Regulars and local militia exchanged fire. Throughout the reenactment the Battle Road Guides, a volunteer group of 18th century interpreters, explained the day’s actions to the assembled crowd.  The British Regulars were eventually driven ahead by the militia and chased back to Lexington along the old Bay Road, now Battle Road. Finally, the event at the Park concluded with a volley of musket fire by the militia in the direction of the Regular’s retreat.

The Friends of Minute Man National Park enjoyed meeting with visitors and playing games with the many children (and quite a few parents!) who stopped by the tent to say hello. A special thank you is extended to our musician friends, Frank &  Dirk of the King’s Rangers,  for providing such wonderful music throughout the day. And thank you to volunteers Vickey, Eleanor, Madeline, Justin, Alexis, Melanie, Adrienne, and Liz for helping with setup and to Friends Board Member Rick Wheeler  for speaking with vistors throughout the morning.

The Friends will be back in the Park with more fun and games during our annual Family Day on Saturday, May 30th. To stay informed of the latest events and programs at the Park and special programs for Friends’ members and Park visitors, join our mailing list or send us an email at info@friendsofminuteman.org. And if you have pictures of today’s event that you’d like to share, we’d love to see them!

The skies may have been a dreary, rainy  gray but spirits were high as crowds assembled at the Meriam House in Concord for Saturday’s observance.  Visitors were able to escape the drizzle by stepping inside the Nathan Meriam House, which was open for viewing from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Families were also  entertained by a participatory play “Hats Off! A Homespun Tribute” that highlighted the many contributions made by our fore-mothers during the Revolutionary War. For the stalwart guests, the Concord Independent Battery was present behind the house, answering questions about the history of the group and the remarkable brass cannons on display.

img_1647At 1:00 p.m sharp, those same cannons issued a loud ‘BOOM!’ and rings of smoke billowed forth as the cannon roar announced the start of the march from Ripley School. The sound of fife & drum music could be heard in the distance as representatives from Bedford, Concord, Carlisle, Charlestown, Acton militia and minutemen, the Sons of the American Revolution, as well as local Girl Scout troops, took their first steps along the parade route.  Members of the Mer(r)iam Family also marched behind a banner proudly displaying their family name. Music was provided by 4-H Fife & Drum, Middlesex County Volunteers, and Sudbury Fife & Drum. Park Superintendent Nancy Nelson was joined by this year’s honorees and parade marshal as the parade wound up the street and ended at the foundation of the original Meriam house that stood at the corner on April 19, 1775.

A brief ceremony with musical selections and wreath laying with musket salute followed the parade. The marchers then stepped off the field, reversed their marching route and disappeared into the distance with the sound of fife and drum music still lingering in the air. For many, this was the second of three stops during the day, with Bedford Pole Capping in the morning, and Paul Revere’s Capture occuring later that afternoon. For others, this was their one brush with history for the day and surely it was time well spent!
