“The Regulars are coming!”
That was the phrase heard on the morning of April 19, 1775 along the highways leading to Lexington and Concord from Boston, Massachusetts. While we can't go back and see things as they were, we can try and capture the locations of these historical events through photography and modern technology in the form of virtual tours. We at the Virtual American Revolution project hope you enjoy and learn a bit about America's past by referencing our images of the American present.
We begin with the events that happened in Massachusetts, grouped into two parts: "Unrest and Anger" and "Colonial Rebellion". Eventually, we hope to add many more events that contribute to the entire history of the American Revolution.

My name is Carlton SooHoo and I am the principle member of the Virtual American Revolution Project. I've been hitting various location of the American Revolution, at first in Massachusetts and eventually across the entire eastern USA, in order to try and capture an idea of the importance of these historical events.
