Description Battle of Lexington reenactment on Lexington Common, April 19, 1911.

"This was done by an outside group of "movie" actors but was not a success, too many children and dogs, etc. Could this have been intended as a part of the movie version of "Janice Meredith"?* The "Battle" appears in that movie."
