Who was Col. John Robinson and why should we remember him?  Why did he and other Westford militia and minutemen turn out on the morning of April 19th, 1775?  How else did he contribute to the effort to gain independence from Great Britain?  Following the dedication of the Col. John Robinson Memorial Highway by the Westford Remembers Committee, Dan Lacroix will discuss Col. Robinson’s significant, and largely unrecognized, contributions to the fight for independence and to the town of Westford.  He will also provide an overview of the Robinson Trail March from Westford to Concord’s North Bridge that occurs on Patriot’s Day.  Dan leads the Westford Minutemen and is president of the WHS.

The Col. John Robinson Memorial Highway will consist of the stretch of Concord Road (Rt. 225) between Rt. 495 and Beaver Brook Road, passing the land he called his home, and Westlawn Cemetery where he and his family are buried.
