Flowers left for John Parker
After a restless night of alarms, counsels, musters and dismissals of militia, mysterious couriers, intelligence and counterintelligence, a 45 yr old vetern of Rogers' Rangers in the French and Indian wars, Captain John Parker, commanding the Lexington minutemen, directed his drummer boy to go across the road to the Common and beat the call to arms. And when William Diamond, bringing the enthusiasm of his sixteen years to the beating of his gaily emblazoned drum, rolled out the call to the village's minutemen, the War of the American Revolution began. "William Diamond's Drum"Thank you for your Leadership. Rest in Peace Sir.
