As some of my readers know, I am really interested in the way the American Revolution has been remembered. Next year I have a student doing an honors thesis on this topic and for the last several years I have been working on a collaborative project with students and former students on the memory of a tea burning in the southern New Jersey town of Greenwich.
I was thus fascinated by J.L. Bell’s recent post on what may be the first reenactment of the Battle of Lexington. Bell suggests that it may have occurred in 1822. Check out more here.
