Four major events normally take place on Patriots’ Day (April 19th) in the Boston area: the Boston Marathon, a Red Sox home game, the reenactment of Paul Revere’s ride and the reenactment of the Battles of Lexington and Concord. This year the only event taking place is the Red Sox game, with limited fan participation. All other events are virtual. Next year you can watch the reenactments of the ride of Paul Revere and the Battles of Lexington and Concord in person! In the meantime, you can gain a greater understanding of the leaders, the politics and the events that led up to the American Revolution by reading the books and listening to digital audiobooks on this list.
