The Minute Men: The First Fight : Myths and Realities of the American Revolution
This volume shows that the minute-man idea - a cornerstone of American mythology - was already a century-and-a-half old at the start of the Revolution when the minute-men fired the shot heard 'round the world. This book presents the battles of Lexington and Concord.

Read this in advance of taking the kids to Lexington/Concord for the Patriots Day weekend. Very good overview of the development of the Minute Man system (and how it differed from the militia) and an excellent narrative history of the April 19 battles. Read full review
