Friends of Minute Man Winter Lecture: “The British Soldiers who Came to Concord" with Don N. Hagist
Please join us for the Friends of Minute Man annual Winter Lecture with Don N. Hagist presenting “The British Soldiers who Came to Concord.”

Some 700 red-coated soldiers marched from Boston to Concord on April 19, 1775. Who were the men in those uniforms? This talk will describe the ages, places of birth, background, and eventual fate of the British sergeants, corporals, drummers, fifers, and private soldiers who fought in the opening conflict of the Revolutionary War. Meet some of the individuals who enlisted in the British army and came to America to insure peace, only to find themselves thrust into war.

Don N. Hagist, editor of the Journal of the American Revolution, is an independent researcher specializing in the demographics and material culture of the British Army in the American Revolution. His books include Noble Volunteers: the British Soldiers who fought the American Revolution (2020), and The Revolution’s Last Men: The Soldiers Behind the Photographs (2015). He maintains a blog about British common soldiers and has published a number of articles in academic journals.

This free program is supported in part by a grant from the Concord Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency
