peter_green80 The Buckman Tavern in Lexington, MA. The Colonial militia gathered in the taproom of this Tavern to await the coming of the Redcoats. The first shots of the American Revolution were fired on the town square right across the street! #LexingtonMA #AmericanRevolution #latergram #nofilter 8h

taraross1787 On this day in 1775, the #Massachusetts Committee of Safety commissions Benedict Arnold as a colonel. He was to enlist up to 400 men and “march to the Fort at Ticonderoga, and…reduce the same, taking possession of the cannon, mortars, stores, &c.” It had been only two weeks since the “shot heard round the world” at #Lexington and #Concord. The British were now under siege, trapped in #Boston. Arnold responded to those events by rounding up his company of foot guards and heading toward #Cambridge. He soon had an idea. He’d been told that Fort #Ticonderoga was in disrepair and was not well-guarded. Plus, there were plenty of cannon there! What if the fort were captured and some of the cannon dragged to Cambridge? The cannons might help #Americans to gain an advantage. Arnold presented his idea to Dr. Joseph Warren, the President of the Massachusetts Provincial Congress. Warren liked the idea. On May 2, the Committee of Safety voted to commission Arnold as a colonel. On May 3, his orders were signed. Arnold departed for Ticonderoga soon thereafter. His commission was signed by Dr. Benjamin Church, the chairman of the Committee of Safety. You already know that Arnold turned out to be a traitor. Interestingly, Church was also later discovered to be a British spy. What an odd coincidence. As Arnold departed from Cambridge, he was unaware of a similar effort already underway in #Connecticut. Ethan Allen was leading his group of Green Mountain Boys toward Fort Ticonderoga: Allen also intended to capture the fort and its cannons! The story of Fort Ticonderoga, Arnold, and Allen will continue next week! ;) FULL STORY: Facebook.com/TaraRoss.1787 #TDIH #AmericanHistory #USHistory #history #liberty #freedom #throwback #revolution #AmericanRevolution #America #USA #classicalconversations #historybuff #sharethehistory 11h

just_2_eze Time to get into some bonneville seats. For those b-body folks that wanna do this- 91-99 bonneville seats are the ones that hug you like nothing else. You WILL HAVE TO make adapter plates because these seats are slightly longer than SS seats. You can also swap the ss rails onto the Bonny seats but I wanted to keep mine. 1/4 inch plate from lowes and about an a couple hrs to make cuts and make holes and adust and remake holes that I fucked up on but bam wayyyyyyyy better seat setup. Also mine are the 6 ways that all they need are 12v and ground. #bonnevillegang #chevrolet #chevy #bowtie #supersport #sslife #impalass #ss
