First Shot: The Day the Revolution Began

Monday April 19, 2021
11:00 AM until 12:30 PM


Many of us know the story of the Battle of Lexington - that the plucky band of local militia faced off against the mighty British army on the town common on April 19, 1775. But what actually happened on the Battle Green that day, and how did we get to that point? Join us for a deeper dive into the story of that day as we show our award-winning short film First Shot! The Day the Revolution Began.

Following this viewing, local reenactors with experience recreating the battle will be available to answer your questions about the history of the battle, the context of the Revolutionary War, and what it is like to step back in time and relive the past. Rounding off the program will be a performance by Diane Taraz, founder and leader of the Lexington Historical Society Colonial Singers.
