Lexington and Concord 1775 on Obscure Battles

If you have yet to read any of the entries on Jeff Berry's EXCELLENT Obscure Battles blog, then I highly recommend you start with his latest entry:  Lexington and Concord 1775

The Fight on Lexington Common, April 19, 1775 - Howard Pyle 1898

As a supplement to Jeff's excellent text and simply outstanding maps I also recommend you listen to the five part series that Marc Edelheit did on the subject for his 2 Cent History podcast series.  Like Dan Carlin's Hardcore History, 2 Cent History is an extremely well researched podcast, and his Shot Heard Round the World series is simply one of the best history podcast's I have listened to.  I think I must have listened to it four or five times and it is a permanent resident on my iPhone.

So give all these folks some love, read Jeff's blog, and listen to Marc's and Dan's podcasts.  You will not regret it.



  1. That's mighty nice of you to recommend my blog, Bil. High praise, indeed.

  2. I agree with you. That is a very valid point you bring up. Thank you for sharing this very informative and well explained post with us.
