Lexington-Concord Set: 5 Cent Stamp
Minute Man Statue

The highest denomination of the Lexington-Concord series was issued on April 4, 1925, at the same time as the 1 cent and 2 cent stamps.  This stamp displays the Minute Man statue that is located in Minute Man National Historical Park in Concord, Massachusetts.  The statue was designed by Daniel Chester French in 1875 and is located at the North Bridge.  This is the location where the colonial militia fought the British on the first day of the Revolutionary War. 

The 970 acre park also includes many other historical landmarks including the Hartwell Tavern, and the Obelisk Monument (the first monument to American War casualties) and the Wayside, a house from colonial times that was home to many famous Americans including Nathaniel Hawthorne, Louisa May Alcott, and others.
