First Shot: The Lexington Revolutionary Experience
by Rick Beyer & with photographs by Paul Doherty
A recent publication from the Lexington Historical Society by member Rick Beyer serves as a most complete and clearly presented guide to all the relevant revolution sites within the town of Lexington. Pictures and identification of monuments for Lexington Green, the Hancock-Clarke House, Buckman Tavern and the Munroe Tavern, as well as the old Belfry and the Old Burying ground give important historical documentation to the most special role of Lexington in the first events of the American Revolution. First person accounts are included.
