On Saturday, April 14th at 2:00am the Wilmington Minutemen began their annual march to Concord to commemorate the Battle of Lexington and Concord. Dressed in traditional revolutionary attire and armed with replica rifles, the minutemen marched through Wilmington firing shots along the way until they reached the battlefield at about 8:00am.
Their sprit was lively, and I am always astonished with the level of energy they bring to this special event. They do a remarkable job bringing history to life and invoking the same passion in future generations, including Boy Scout Troop 136, who accompanied the Wilmington Minutemen on their march.
Posted below are some photos that I was able to capture early Saturday morning. To learn more about the Wilmington Minutemen please click here to view their website.
