Excerpt from Proceedings at the Centennial Celebration of Concord Fight: April 19, 1875

The committee chosen by the town of Concord at the March meeting, 1874, and clothed with full powers to prepare for and carry out a centennial celebration of Concord Fight, deeming the occasion worthy of a more complete and permanent record than could be obtained in the columns of the newspapers, and wishing to furnish to those who were attracted to Concord by the national importance of the first Centennial of the American Revolution, and by the patriotic memories it awakened, an opportunity of preserving in a permanent form an official history of our ceremonies, and feeling it to be their duty also to render to the town an account of the manner in which they executed their trust, delegated to the undersigned the task of preparing and publishing such an account, which is herewith respectfully submitted as the Report of the Committee of Arrangements. Their financial statement appears in the Town Report for 1875-6.

The Nineteenth of April, 1775, has always been regarded by the people of New England as the national birthday; and its fiftieth and seventy-fifth anniversaries were celebrated at Concord by the towns of Middlesex, Essex, and Norfolk, whose men shared with the men of our town the dangers and glories of that day.

But the people of Concord believed that the hundredth anniversary of the opening of the Revolutionary War would be recognized universally as of national interest, and that their preparations for the celebration of it should be on a scale commensurate with the importance of the occasion.
