Lexington, Massachusetts ~ May 7, 2006
Rendezvous of the Minutemen
Now a museum
All history aside, there is a beauty and genteel simplicity about rural New England that feels so different from almost anywhere I'd been before. I've always lived in the Western United States, and I love it. I love the rugged land and so much about it, but there was a specialness here among the flowering trees, green grass, and three-hundred-year-old buildings that had seen it all and seemed the wiser for it.
Rendezvous of the
Battle of Lexington
April 19, 1775
The green commemorating the skirmish is across the street, marked by several plaques and the famous Minuteman statue.
