Bedford Boy Scout Troop 194 celebrated  Patriots’ Day 2017 with an adventure. Gathering at the Lexington Common in the early hours of the morning, the group viewed the reenactment of the Battle of Lexington. Immediately following the “battle,” the Troop gathered with a few other local scout groups, to hike the Battle Road Trail through Minute Man National Historic Park.

The Battle Road Trail follows a part of the route taken by the British Regulars on their march from Boston to Concord and back in 1775. Along the trail are historic houses, farmlands, wetlands, and fields. In Concord, the group watched the town parade, partook of the Rotary Club pancake breakfast, and made their way to the Concord Bridge area to see some cannons fire.
