19 April 1775

,


“Stand your ground; don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.”
Captain John Parker.

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood
And fired the shot heard round the world.

–Ralph Waldo Emerson

Also at the North Bridge:

Grave of British Soldiers

They came three thousand miles and died,
to keep the past upon its throne:
Unheard, beyond the ocean tide,
their English Mother made her moan.
April 19, 1775

James Russell Lowell
