    “Let Us Wait No Longer!” Salem and the Lexington Alarm

    By 8 am on April 19, 1775, news of the British march had reached all the way to Essex County. There Elias Hasket Derby mustered with his town’s militia and marched in the hopes of fighting the British soldiers. Jim Hollister and Emily Murphy, both National Park Service Rangers, portray Elias Hasket Derby and his wife in conversation about their hopes and fears, and the intrigue of a people in arms and a country at war.
