Upcoming Events in Lexington

On Saturday, 30 May, from noon to 3:00, the Minute Man National Historical Park and its Friends is hosting its free Family Day activities: historic games, kite-flying, marching, singing, and other fun for kids. And it looks like the weather will be ideal.

In addition, I now have a title for Prof. David Glassberg’s lecture on 10 June at the park’s Lexington visitor center (mentioned back here): “Senses of History: The Place of the Past in American Life.”
