PFF - American Patriot postcard
Early postcard of the Statue of Capt. Parker, Lexington Mass. Mid April is the anniversary of "the shot heard around the world," as some people refer to it. The Battle of Lexington and Concord was the first military engagement of the American Revolutionary War, fought on April 19, 1775. John Parker captained the Lexington militia on that day. There is no known likeness of him however, so a bit of artistic license is involved in this statue.
I'm joining Beth for Postcard Friendship Friday.
