Untitled[edit]

I think it should be "John Parker (captain)" like "Jesse James (outlaw)". Do you agree? Gerard53 13:20, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Good idea, done. Of course, now there are a lot of "What links here" connections to fix. :-) Stan 15:48, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Death date[edit]

The article says 17 september, but the infobox says 19 september. I have set it to read 17 in both places, but I would like confirmation of one or the other. Tealwisp (talk) 05:04, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

I have the only book written by John Parker's grandson which describes the battles and family as told by other members. I believe this has revelent info on where he died.Bazzledorf (talk) 14:02, 14 January 2009 (UTC)

Statues[edit]

The statue in Lexington, MA is often mistaken as John Parker. It was erected as a monument of the minutemen not a single person. The same for Concord, except it was erected in memory of the minutemen from Concord.

Also Sentry Insurance does use the silhouette of the Lexington Statue as their logo, but the US Army National Guard uses the Concord Statues Silhoutte. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bazzledorf (talkcontribs) 21:58, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
