The Minutemen and their World is a history of 18th-century Concord, a Massachusetts town located approximately twenty miles west of Boston. With the Battle of Lexington and Concord as focal points, the author sets out to explain how those events fit into town life in Lexington and Concord. At the beginning of the 18th century, Concord was a relatively prosperous town whose population was increasing.
