If you are from Massachusetts, then you are very familiar with Patriot’s Day. You may think of the Boston Marathon or perhaps that other great mass march, which occurred April 19th, 1775, when the British regulars marched into Lexington and Concord marking the start of the Revolutionary War.
Dracut residents were part of that fateful day and time. They would go on to participate in the Battle of Bunker Hill, where 3 men died, as well as at Valley Forge during the winter of 1777-1778. Did you know that 439 men out of a population of 1173, or 37% of the population of Dracut took part in the Revolution?! Check out the links below for events and information about the Revolution.
