James Murphy of Coventry, Conn. leads volunteer "minutemen" to arms against incoming British soldiers at Historic Deerfield on Saturday during the Patriot's Day Revolutionary Muster and Parade. As Historic Deerfield states on its website, the event was a chance to “travel back in time and rediscover the history behind the Patriot’s Day holiday and the ‘shot heard round the world.’” The period in the nation’s history comes to life “... through demonstrations of period crafts and activities, fife and drum music, and a parade and muster. Nathan Hale Ancient Fifes and Drums, Knowlton’s Connecticut Rangers and Buckland’s Artillery play a lead role in the day’s activities.”
