Note 1:
After Paul Revere rode thru the territory north of Boston
to warn: "The British are coming",
the men around Lexington, MA
gathered in this tavern next to the Lexington Green
until the next morning when they would be
assembled on this Green to face the British that
had come up from Boston to seize the stach of arms
hidden by Minutemen
......Until someone fired
"the shot heard around the world."
that started the American Revolutionary War

Note 2:
You are able to visit this landmark today
You'll notice the low ceiling in the tavern because people were shorter then
and you'll be able to stand at the very bar our forefathers dicussed
the birth of a nation.
