Revolutionary Boston, Lexington and Concord
The Shots Heard 'Round the World!


    By Joseph L. Andrews, Jr., MD

The only comprehensive guide to the Revolutionary history of Boston and towns west of the city just got better.

Three years ago, Dr. Joel Andrews self-published a 64-page first edition that sold out in five months. In 1999, he brought out a bigger, better second edition that quickly established itself as the indispensable guide for visitors seeking information about the American Revolution in our region.

Fully revised, updated, and redesigned, the Third Edition features:

  • Individual chapters on the Revolutionary history of Boston, Cambridge, Lexington, and Concord, as well as other important towns along the Battle Road
  • Sites to visit in each town
  • A new guide to Boston's Freedom Trail
  • Chapters on the roles played in the American Revolution by women, children, African Americans, native Americans, and Jews

JOSEPH LYON “JOEL” ANDREWS, JR., MD is a physician, author, activist, and history buff. A former resident of Boston, he now lives in Concord, where he is a licensed Concord Guide, founder and director of Concord Guides Walking Tours, and a former member of the Concord Historical Commission. He is also a free-lance writer for the Boston Globe and for many other publications.
