Lincoln Alarm & Muster: The LMM re-enact the scene on the town common in the early hours of April 19, 1775, as minute men and their families responded to the alarm that British soldiers were advancing from Boston.

Captain Smith assembles the soldiers for roll call, offers a stirring speech, and calls for a brisk musket drill and practice volleys. The Company and the spectators then march together to Pierce House, for more music, musket volleys, and interaction with the public. This event takes place no matter what the weather. Free event.
