May 20, 2018 – Massachusetts – Minuteman National Historic Park

Today we visited Minuteman National Historic Park, which we have visited before.  This Park includes the towns of Lincoln, Concord, and Lexington.  Minuteman National Park commemorates the opening battle in the American Revolutionary War.  The park encompasses over 900 acres of land, and includes the North Bridge, “The Battle Road Trail”, and The Wayside Inn.

We strolled along the trails, over the North Bridge, stopping at various landmarks, along, and adjacent to the trail.  It was a humid spring day, a good excuse for Shadow to enjoy a swim in the Concord River. Wilma herself enjoyed a good bark at the Daniel Chester French’s statue “Minute Man” (video below.)  She must know history is really not my thing, a good reason to add a history stop to our adventures.  (Rating:  3)
