John Parker was born in Lexington, Massachusetts, on July 13, 1729. Parker played a prominent role in the first battle of the War for Independence, as leader of the volunteer American militia known as the Minutemen.
On the night of April 18, 1775, Parker received warning of the approach of the king's soldiers under Major John Pitcairn. Parker assembled about seventy volunteers to face the British. In the ensuing skirmish on Lexington Green on April 19, eight Americans were killed and ten were wounded.Stand your ground. Don't fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here~ Captain John Parker to the company assembled on Lexington Green.

We have some great pic's on Matts camera-good wipe outs :) I'll post those later. Kevin tried to do the "Uncle Jim" tube ride to Matt. He beat him up pretty well, but has not mastered the technique. Something interesting happened while Kevin was pulling Matt on the tube . We had "In the jungle" from a CD Jim had left in the player turned up when the floating boat key chain Jim had the key on came apart and out falls his wedding ring! Cindy thought it was in the boat but we couldn't find it ~ until Saturday. I can't wait to give it to Cindy.
