NPS Interpretive plaque, Sunflower field, Battle Road, Minute Man National Historic Park, Concord, MA

Mark Auslander, on 9/19/2009 writes: "Along the trail in the midst of the meadow a National Park Service interpretive plaque recounted details of the running battle, including the fact that the effective range of a musket was roughly the distance from the sign to Route 2a, about seventy-five yards away. Yet in this blaze of autumnal color it was hard to imagine many walkers stopping to read the sign; the consciousness being imposed on the walker was more one exultation, perhaps tinged by awareness of the coming of winter, a sense intensified by the darkening reds of the foliage and the slight chill in the air."
