The Militiamen of Massachusetts

As I’m writing about the Battles of Lexington-Concord and Menotomy, I realized I needed information about leaves, etc.  I came across this nice powerpoint done by the National Parks detailing the equipment of the militiamen, which varied by town.  Some towns required them to totally outfit themselves, while others might provide things such as bayonets.

Following Lexington, the militiamen who turned out not only chased the British back to Boston, but besieged the city so that the British were blocked in by land.
