On Sunday afternoon September 25th join the Wharton and Penn Alumni Clubs at 2:30 p.m. for small group private tours of the scene of the bloodiest battle on the first day of the Revolutionary War, April 19, 1775. The scene of the most intense fighting was the Jason Russell House (at the corner or Mass Ave and Jason Street) in Arlington (then known as Menotomy) - a modest colonial farmhouse where 12 patriots, including Jason Russell himself - made the ultimate sacrifice for their belief in America's freedom! During the tour, the guides will also describe life in colonial times. From there, we will take a short walk to visit the cemetery where the patriots are buried. Afterwards, we will gather at the Menotomy Grill (a short drive away in East Arlington) where you can purchase food and drink, including "Cooper's Flip" (Cruzan rum, cask ale, molasses, egg, pumpkin puree) - Flip was a popular drink at the time of the Revolution.

Tickets $5 for members and $10 for non-members (food and drink not included).

The Jason Russell House is a ~35 minute walk from the Alewife T stop, and is also directly accessible by the 67 and 79 buses, which depart from the Alewife T stop.
