Det skal I lave

We will start the tour on Lexington Green, one of the best known landmarks of that fateful day when the American Revolution began. We will recount stories about that day, some familiar and many not that well known, like the house where Paul Revere was told to be quite as he was spreading the alarm.

We will then head toward Concord, making several stops along the way at locations with many other surprising tales that may be contrary to popular accounts.

In Concord we will visit the Old North Bridge and learn about heroic and tragic events that took place at the bridge and surrounding area.

On the return leg we will visit several little known but very significant sites with their own stories to tell. We will complete the adventure where we started, on Lexington Green, to talk about the horrific British retreat to Boston.

I hope that guests will gain a new appreciation of that historic day, when a group of poorly trained and poorly equipped, but highly motivated farmers and tradespeople stood up to the greatest military force in the world.

I hope you will be surprised and entertained by these tales that don't often get told.

I have lived in the Minuteman area of Massachusetts for over 50 years and I have become totally immersed in the history of the Battle of Lexington and Concord, a pivotal event in American History. My interest led to the production of three LPs of period music for the Bicentennial. To prepare these albums I scoured the local libraries and historical societies for information. My research has led to many fascinating discoveries about the events of the day. I would like to share these with you, including anecdotes, secrets, stories, legends and popular misconceptions that I uncovered. I think you will be surprised and entertained by these tales that don't often get told.

Her skal du være

We will be visiting a dozen sites of significance in Lexington, Lincoln and Concord, some well known (Lexington Green, Old North Bridge) but some often overlooked (Merriam's Corner, Bloody Angle, Fiske Hill, Hayward's Well, Minuteman Boulder, others) plus a site I will not name because it will give away it's surprising story. Time permitting, we will also stop at the historic Colonial Inn in Concord for some refreshments midway on the tour.

This was a great experience. Fred does an amazing job bringing history to life with stories, visual aids and personal trips in his very nice and clean car to the actual sites of importance to the birth of our nation! I was staying in Boston, without a car. I took a Lyft to the meeting place and found Fred easily and Fred helped me pick a great spot to arrange for the return Lyft trip back to Boston. Each ride was about $30. All in, I spent around $100 (rides and tour) for a very informative tour private of Lexington and Concord. A great value! I highly recommend Fred's tour!

We had a great tour with Fred around Lexington and Concord and heard lots of backstories about the early days of the American Revolution. We appreciated all the inside info about the people who lived in the area and the context of the Minutemen. He was able to answer questions from adults and curious children and make history come alive for us while taking us to the locations where the events actually happened. His passion for the area and the histories is evident and we thoroughly enjoyed our morning with Fred.

super fun morning with Fred as he led us through Lexington and Concord. His knowledge of the area is vast and he was very patient with our kids as they peppered him with questions about the locations and people in the stories. He had pictures and props to help us get a better sense of the context and bring history to life!

A thorough, in-depth review of our country’s state prior and leading up to the Revolutionary War. It really laid the groundwork and gave us a great picture and timeline for when we walked the Freedom Trail a couple days later!

Fred’s history tour is a must! He was very accommodating with our travel plans and worked with us to schedule it when it worked best for us and picked us up at the inn er we’re staying at. I would highly recommend anyone do Freds history tour:)

An in-depth, action and story-filled experience of the Lexington & Concord event timeline, key persons and sites. Fred kept us enthralled; listened to and answered all our questions. He clearly loves the history, area and sharing it with others.
