Walking Battle Road!
« on: April 06, 2017, 08:50:41 PM »
MA will be hosting an Appleseed trip down Battle Road on May 21st! 
We'll muster on Lexington green at 8, and proceed to the Paul Revere Capture site, the Old North Bridge, and Merriam's corner, giving everyone a chance to give each strike to a friendly audience, on the ground the actual events took place on.  If time permits, we'll proceed down the road to see places like Bloody Angle, Hartwell tavern, and more.
Whether you've never given the strikes before or you've been telling them for a decade, there's nothing like treading the ground to give you a new appreciation for the events of April 19th, 1775, and the achievement of that day.

Having made the trip to Battle Road last year, I cannot say enough about how it feels to walk the ground.  Hearing the story exactly where it took place will really bring it home.  Do not miss this if you are in range of it.  Be sure to speak to Isaac (the Minuteman statue) at the North Bridge and give him my regards.

Wow that would be fun. Alas instead I will be border raiding into NE to run a shoot and do a SBIT 3 to help add another green hat to their cadre. Maybe next year .....
