Battle Road Trail

Correndo per 5 miglia lungo la lunghezza del Minute Man National Historic Park, il leggendario Battle Road Trail segue il percorso della famigerata battaglia di Lexington e Concord, lo scontro tra le truppe britanniche e Colonial Minute Men che ha segnato l'inizio della Rivoluzione americana Guerra.

Camminare o andare in bicicletta lungo il Battle Road Trail conduce i visitatori in un viaggio attraverso i fatidici eventi del 19 aprile 1775, passando per i campi coltivati, i boschi e le piste sterrate che servivano da campi di battaglia e punti di imboscata durante le battaglie, nonché i principali siti storici. Il percorso segnalato include indicatori e pannelli informativi che raccontano la storia di ogni luogo, e le attrazioni includono la Hartwell Tavern, la casa del XVIII secolo del capitano William Smith, la casa coloniale di John Meriam e il sito della cattura di Paul Revere, oltre che strategico siti come Bloody Angle, Parker's Revenge e Fiske Hill.
