J.L. Bell runs down Revolutionary events in the area this weekend.
First, come to the First Church Roxbury to celebrate William Dawes's ride to Lexington. Then follow Dawes and head across the river and up the road to Lexington Green for the battle re-enactment at 5:30 pm.
It looks like the re-enacted Dawes "midnight" ride starts at 9:30 am Monday in Roxbury, but the Lexington battle re-enactment will have already occurred at 5:30 am (not pm)
Ron Newman, you are so right and I am so wrong. We should go to Lexington Green first (5:30 am), then, with an anti-historical chronicity, we should head over to the yard at First Church Roxbury for the doings from 8 am to 12:30 pm.
Either get there even earlier or bring a stepladder (really) or be 10 years old and able to squeeze to the very front. Trust me on this.
