Additional Details:
On the evening of April 18th, 1775, the Minute Men of Bedford, Massachusetts, were alarmed by Nathan Munroe and Benjamin Tidd, both of Lexington, having been sent by Captain Parker. Some of the men mustered at this, the Tavern of Jeremiah Fitch, Jr., built before 1731. Here they were served with light refreshments, to which Captain Willson remarked "It is a cold breakfast, boys, but we will give the Regulars a hot dinner. We'll have every dog of the before night."
