About Us


Henry Hudson Kitson's The Lexington Minuteman statue (1900) — originally symbolizing the generic Minuteman — has come to represent Parker. It stands in Lexington Battle Green.

 We are the descendants of the patriots of the American Revolution.

Our purpose is:

  1. To perpetuate the memory of men and women who, by their service and sacrifices during the War of the American Revolution, achieved the independence of the American people, and the rights and freedoms defined in the Constitution of the United States of America;
  2. To inspire, unite and promote fellowship among the descendants of those men and women;
  3. To inspire the community at large with a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers;
  4. To encourage historical research in relation to the American Revolution;
  5. To acquire and preserve the records of the individual services of the patriots of that war, as well as documents, relics and landmarks;
  6. To mark the scenes of the Revolution by appropriate memorials;
  7. To celebrate the anniversaries of the prominent events of the war and of the Revolutionary period;
  8. To foster true American patriotism;
  9. To maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom; and
  10. To carry out the purposes expressed in the preamble of the Constitution of the United States of America and the injunctions of George Washington in his farewell address to the American People.
