It was January 12, 1775, when the original Concord Minute Men signed the muster rolls thus organizing one of the most famous citizen militia units in American history.
They led the march to Concord’s North Bridge on April 19, 1775, provided the first forcible resistance to the British in the American Revolution, and forever recorded their town’s name in the annals of American history.
Plans for the reactivated Minute Men began in April, 1962, and a proclamation chartering the unit was issued by the Concord Selectmen and the Public Ceremonies Committee on December 10, 1962. The date of the first muster was Saturday January 12, the same date the original Minute Men first mustered in 1775.
Today, the Minute Men are still a proud part of the Concord Community. We are very active these days participating in many area parades, school presentations, fife and drum events, road race starts as well as reenactments around the area.
