Lexington Green. Old North Bridge. Do kids still learn this history? Anyway, it’s Patriots’ Day here in Massachusetts, and also in Maine (part of Mass. at the time of the events, separated later as part of the Missouri Compromise, if I remember right). Boston Marathon starting soon, and the Red Sox are at home for their traditional morning game. So Happy Patriots’ Day! It meant a lot to Emerson and still does, I hope!

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.

Lexington Green. Old North Bridge. Do kids still learn this history? Anyway, it’s Patriots’ Day here in Massachusetts, and also in Maine. Wisconsin, too? Can any badgers confirm? And recently Connecticut may have joined the parade. No Boston Marathon, but the Red Sox are at home for their traditional morning game (for those who follow baseball). So Happy Patriots’ Day! It meant a lot to Emerson and still does, I hope!

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.

To the rest of the country – from one of the places that celebrates it (the 2 being Mass. and Maine). Lots of rain right now, so the Red Sox traditional 11 AM game may be delayed, but the Marathon will be up and running – heh heh – on time. As for what it’s about, here, from Emerson’s Concord Hymn:

By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world.
