The Monday closest to April 19 is a Massachusetts state holiday - April 19, 1775 the shot heard 'round the world happened on Lexington Green.

The Redcoats' volley scatters the Minute Men. Hundreds gather on foot and ladder around the Green at 5:45 in the a.m.

Redcoats now... and then. The Brits are about to join the Boy Scouts pancake breakfast, heldevery year after the skirmish. They are greeted civilly and don't even have to pay. Proof that attitudes have changed since 1775...

I like the shot of the church. But who are all the girls standing around in red dresses and knickers?

They're the group who, a few years later, went home empty-handed...

or, since this all took place is Middlesex County, maybe this bunch was the middle sex (you know, male sex, female sex, middle sex)...

Meanwhile, below, Lucy Clarke (wife of Rev. Jonas Clarke, to whose house Paul Revere was headed on his famous ride) recounts the events of the day to friends in Concord...

You mean, actually being able to go outside without a coat, red or not? Yeah - pretty nice. Though the wife & I both had the parkas on at the Red Sox game Saturday night, along with roughly 38,000 of the 39,000 other fans- 39 degrees by the time we left in the ninth.

Today marks the end of two weeks of solid sunshine... but to compensate, it's going to be in the high 80s.

p.s. - shouldn't complain... it's not like Minnesota, where one of the winter safety reminders each November is that you shouldn't use your snowblower on the roof of your house...
