This is an important part of American history, Brilliant presentation, the kind that doesn't bore children & doesn't talk down to adults. I resent having to click on couples when I am traveling with my adult daughter.

This was the SPOT where the action began for the Revolutionary War started. It is a beautiful place but also very sobering when we realize what happened here. It is beautiful in the fall!

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

Pretty much as expected. Tombstones and monuments in a large green space. But hey, you gotta' go! To not surprise parking is problematic.
