    Improve listing Presented by

The Lincoln Company of Minute Men will re-enact a drama that unfolded in the center of colonial Lincoln just after midnight on April 19, 1775. Captain William Smith will arrive by horse to ring the bell of the White Church (on Bedford Road, across from the town library) and spread the alarm that the British Regulars are coming.

The Lincoln Minute Men will run from the nearby houses and muster before the White Church to receive their orders for the march to Concord. The event will include a horse rider, historical explanations, colonial music, a musket salute, and lots of Revolutionary commotion. (Source: The Lincoln Minute Men
