My family are reinactors and members of the Lexington minute Men. See us on Patriots Day! Usually on or around April 19th. Even if you can't make it in April go to the visitors center for information and historical interpretation.

The flag pole in the park where the American Flag is raise 24 Hours a day. One of the only few sites where the flag... More

It seems that every tine I go here ithere is some kind of activity. This time it was Colonial soldier reenactors marching, or parading. In addition there was a campsite set up with a fire, as it was very cold. A reenactor who was portraying Ebenezer Bowman manned the campsite. The level of detailed knowledge was very impressive and I... More

The Lexington Green was a spiritual place for me. As I was standing in front of the monument to the fallen I read the word inscribed which I felt soul deep. If anyone wants to understand where we've come from as a country please go read these words. Best place to visit if you're 2 or 92.

Even with the cars driving around, it seemed very quiet and peaceful. You get chills just thinking about the events that happened here. Enjoy the beauty of the area and pay your respects.

There isn't a whole lot to see here other than some plaques and statues. Many of the buildings near the green that were around in the 18th century burned down. It's more about sitting there peacefully and trying to imagine the colonial militia anxiously awaiting the arrival of the British on that April morning before dawn....

My wife, two dogs and I happened here on a weekend when a troupe was reenacting battles of the Revolutionary War. This only takes place twice a year. Though the "soldiers" were not yet marching on the filed while we were there, they did have exhibits set up on the lawn demonstrating Revolutionary era firearms, field surgical equipment and the...

When you are on the Green, your body gets the chills thinking at one time History was made on this spot and a battle took place where you were standing. Great place to go and teach your kids about the History here. Ron from New Mexico.
