    A buddy of mine said "My wife is driving me nuts... let's go take pictures in Concord." :lol: Not being one to shun a cool idea, not to mention abandoning a grouchy wife, I was out the door in minutes. :)

    Let me know what you think! Thanks!

    == 1 ==
    The Old North Bridge. This is essentially where the entire US revolutionary war began. The first major skirmish occurred here.

    == 2 ==
    The Minuteman statue on the opposite side of the bridge, where our "troops" first held their ground.

    == 3 ==
    The baptist church near the Milldam in the center of Concord. I'm sure it has some fascinating history, but I don't know it off the top of my head. :)

    Was that the church Paul Revere rode to in order to put up the light saying "one if by land, two if by sea?" I don't know if it is or not.

    The photos are great. They really do a good job of instilling that patriotic spirit. Thank you for sharing.

    Thanks! No, that's actually Old North Church in Boston proper. Old North Church... Old North Bridge... we Bostonians are just SO creative with our names. :lol:

    Ah cool! I've lived most of my life within 10 miles or so of Concord, MA. A lot of history around here, which is very neat. I actually have an aerial shot of the USS Constitution somewhere, too. Oddly, my wife has lived here her entire life and had never even been to some of the historic sites in Concord before we started dating.

    Glad you liked the pics!
