Rep. Markey meets with visitors from Lexington on Constituents' Day!
On Lexington’s Battle Green, April 19, 1775, Colonel John Parker assembled his men to confront the British, declaring “Don't fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here."
Lexington was originally known as Cambridge Farms.
