Our largest project to date has been the sponsorship of Parker’s Revenge, the battle site where Lexington’s Captain Parker reengaged the British Regulars on their retreat to Boston on April 19, 1775.
The Friends raised over $300,000 through grants and donations for the Parker’s Revenge project which included comprehensive archaeological research, rehabilitation of the battlefield, trail design, and the creation of an interpretive exhibit for Park visitors.
