Field Trip for the Humanities

On the 13th of October, both the classes of A.P. History and A.P. English traveled to the cities of Lexington and Concord. The first stop was a brief walk along Battle Road to the visitor center, where the group was shown a multimedia presentation about the Battle of Lexington and Concord. Next up was a visit to the cabin of Henry Thoreau on Walden Pond. The classes had time to walk around the pond itself, look inside a reconstruction of Thoreau’s cabin, and see the foundation of the original house. After “Thoreau-ly” enjoying themselves, the field trip traveled to the North bridge, where the “shot heard round the world” was first fired, and the Old Manse, home to such writers as Emerson and Hawthorne. A guided tour inside the house ended the very historic and informative field trip. (All photos by Paige Alcon).
