The Road to Concord: How Four Stolen Cannon Ignited the Revolutionary War
Presented by J.L. Bell
6:30pm (Doors open at 6:00pm)
In the early spring of 1775, on a farm in Concord, Massachusetts, British army spies located four brass cannon belonging to Boston’s colonial militia that had gone missing months before. British General Thomas Gage had been searching from them – both to stymie New England’s growing rebellion and to erase the embarrassment of having let cannon disappear from armories under Redcoat guard. Anxious to regain those weapons, he drew up plans for his troops to march nineteen miles into unfriendly terriority. The Massachusetts Patriots, meanwhile, prepared to thwart the general’s mission. Both sides shared one goal: to keep the stole cannon a scret. Both sides succeeded well enough that the full story has never appeared until now.
