I visited this park over the Memorial Day weekend. The visit was an excellent companion to the Boston Tea Party Museum which I visited earlier.
The Minuteman National Historic Park has a section that is near Hanscom Air Force Base. That is where I started my visit at the Visitors Center.
The park extends from that location, and goes all the way to Concord. It highlights the day that British Regulars left Boston in April 1775 to destroy munition caches held by the colonists I. Lexington and Concord.
The trail and park details the night before the conflict with Patriots like Paul Revere warning the colonists of the British advance. It follows the start of the conflict, "the shot heard around the world" and the subsequent battle as the British retreated back to Boston fighting through a force of militia amassed from several colonies.
The exhibits in the park are informative, the views are scenic, and it is another "must see" for the history enthusiast. The National Park Service has do a excellent job with grounds keeping and preservation.
