“George” by rhoing


Clare arranged for the wedding group to go to Minute Man National Historical Park this morning » https://www.nps.gov/mima/index.htm

After that, we went to the Battle Green in Lexington (apparently more properly known as Lexington Common). There the mothers of the groom and bride saw "George" in period costume and — longer story short — arranged for a tour of the Battle Green. Wow!!

George is a volunteer for the Lexington Historical Society » http://www.lexingtonhistory.org/
but also a re-enactor, Revolutionary-era scholar and author. He's a gem! He walked us around the Common and told the story of the events of the morning of April 19, 1775.

» Although George's attire is authentic to the period (except for these eyeglasses and modern shoes that re-enactors are allowed to wear if they're covered by gators), the vehicles in the background are *not* "of the period."
