About the Event

 The Dawn Tribute is a moving and public ceremony designed more recently to commemorate the Revolutionary Patriots buried next to Bemis Hall.  The Dawn Tribute is a brief but dramatic ceremony.  As the Patriot roll is called, soldiers reply from the graveyard and come join the ranks.  A fifer plays a lament; a soldier fires a commemorative volley.  The Company then begins its march to Concord, stopping along the way at Dakin Field for another memorial fifers’ lament and musket volley.
