Among the items you can see:
- Paul Revere's Lantern
- William Diamond’s drum that summoned the Lexington militia to the Common
- James Hayward’s powder horn, pierced by the bullet that killed him
- a mirror broken by the British and passed down in a family with a handwritten note until given to a museum.
An ancillary exhibit of images from my Last Muster Project shows viewers the faces of the men and women who lived in Revolutionary times. Museum visitors were struck by the intensity of the portraits and the life stories of these individuals. Thank you to Carol Haines and Sara Lundberg for their support of this project.
