Patriot's Day...A Holiday in Massachusetts but Important to All Americans

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Cape Cod and the Islands

Monday, April 19, 1775 marked the beginning of the American Revolution. The historical significance of the day sometimes gets lost in the excitement of the Boston Marathon, the Red Sox game, school vacation week, and just the start of nice spring weather.

The Battles of Lexington and Concord are reenacted every Patriot's Day and My wife Mary Beth and I will be spectator's at this year's 235th reenactment. It starts at 6:00 am on Lexington Green. We have read about the battles in the past but are looking forward to being there.

You can learn all about it at www.battleroad.org.

I had never heard of 'Patriot's Day" before reading this. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Most in New England do not know about it either, unless they are a marathon or Red Sox fan!
