Thank you for visiting the online home of The Lexington Minute Men!
The Lexington Minute Men are dedicated to honoring those brave Patriots who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our Nation's freedom.
From those who first fell on Lexington Green, to the heroes of today, we hope to continue telling the story of American Independence.
Those who join our company will enjoy reenacting 18th century life as a soldier in the militia and the Continental Army. We also participate in many ceremonial activities including parades, inaugural events, dedications, trade shows, and more.
We consider ourselves historians and enthusiastically and meticulously research our time period and those we represent.

Patriots' Day in Lexington
Patriots' Day commemorates the Battle of Lexington on April 19, 1775. Since 1969 this day has been observed on the third Monday in April.
Next year Patriots' Day will be observed on Monday April 15, 2019. The reenactment of the Battle of Lexington will be held on the Lexington Green starting at 5:30am, the time of the original battle. More details will become available soon.
Patriots' Day is observed over a period of days before, on, and after the third Monday in April, with The Lexington Minute Men involved in the reenactment and the Patriots' Day Parade. In Lexington we celebrate this day in high fashion with the reenactment of the Battle accompanied by civic events both before and after the reenactment. It is traditionally the beginning of the year for tourist activities in Lexington.
An excellent listing of all of the day's events in Lexington can be found at the Lexington Historical Society's Patriots' Day in Lexington web page. A listing of all of the events in the communities surrounding the Battle Road can be found at the Battle Road web site.
