Inscription. On the morning of April 19, 1775, approximately 400 colonials stood on the hill overlooking the North Bridge. As smoke rose from Concord center, the order to march was given. In the exchange of fire that followed, Captain Isaac Davis, who had exclaimed “I haven’t a man who is afraid to go,” was killed together with Abner Hosmer, a private, also from Acton.

This memorial was erected by the Captain Isaac Davis Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, April, 1975.
