From the American Revolution to the Literary Revolution

The Minute Man National Historical Park comprises 1038 acres and runs through the towns of Lexington, Lincoln, and Concord, MA.

The Park commemorates the opening battles of the American Revolution on April 19, 1775 and celebrates the American revolutionary spirit through the writings of the Concord authors.

The Friends of Minute Man National Park provides much needed support to help the Park preserve the significant historic sites, structures, landscapes, events, and ideas of the American Revolution.
