The Lexington Minuteman statue was built in 1900, at the east end of the Battle Green. This bronze statue depicts Capt. John Parker, leader of the militia.
Update 4/21/2003: Here’s another photo of the Minuteman.
The American Revolution began here, on the Lexington Battle Green, on April 19, 1775. This date is celebrated as Patriots’ Day each year in Massachusetts, as well as Maine. In the background of this photo is the First Parish Church.
Back underway on the Samana, having left Monhegan. Not a lot of wind, but at least the famous Maine fog has not closed us in.
Welcome to Monhegan Island, Maine. Now Please GO AWAY (National Geographic, July 2001).
This is the lighthouse on Monhegan Island. I took this photo during a sailing trip in 1995. Solar power was added to the lighthouse later that year; the panels were put behind the tower relative to this photo. Perhaps the fencing visible in this shot was to block off the work area for this project.
This is the view through some brush of Lower Vine Brook.
