Be A Junior Ranger
When visiting Minute Man National Historical Park, you can acquire a Junior Ranger Booklet at the Minute Man Visitor Center or North Bridge Visitor Center. Complete the activities in the booklet. Show your work to a Park Ranger, and get your badge!
We also have another version of the Junior Ranger Booklet appropriate for children ages 4-7.

Often considered "ragtag" by the British regular army, the Massachusetts colonial militia was actually very well organized. With a few exceptions, able-bodied men between 16 and 60 years of age were required to serve. They were the main line of defense for the colony for nearly 150 years before the Revolution.
