Many consider Concord to be the birthplace of our nation, and on April 19, 1775, shots rang out around the world, heralding the beginning of the War of Independence. The ensuing conflict at the Battle of Lexington and Concord was in itself an incident that triggered the American Revolutionary War. British troops returned to Boston, tormented by militias arriving in the region, who harassed them with their guns, culminating in the siege of Boston and the outbreak of war. Parker's revenge happened on the North Bridge in Concord, just a few miles from the battlefield. At noon, Lexington Minute Men will lay a wreath at a memorial service honoring soldiers killed in Concord during the war and the victims of that battle.
