Revolutionary War artifacts

HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. – Col. Lester A. Weilacher (center), 66th Air Base Group commander, hands over a knife from the Revolutionary War battle of Parker’s Revenge to Nancy Nelson, Minute Man National Historical Park superintendent, during a ceremony here Oct. 3, as Lexington Minute Men Michael DaRu (left) and Bill Poole as well as Terrie Wallace, park curator, stand by. Because of Hanscom’s proximity to Revolutionary War sites, archeologists conducted a search on base and, in addition to the knife, uncovered musket balls and a shoe buckle.
