Abstract Folder, "Minute-Man Memorial Plaque proposal"

Correspondence and other documents related to the creation of a Minute Man Memorial on the grounds of Buckman Tavern. Originally proposed for the Battle of Lexington Sesquicentennial in 1925, the idea provoked discussion and controversy that lasted until the Lexington Minute Men of 1775 Memorial was unveiled on April 19, 1949. The memorial is inscribed with the names of the 12 officers and 68 men known to have participated in the April 19, 1775 fighting on the Lexington Green.
