Walden Pond

Website: http://www.mass.gov/dcr/parks/walden

Walden Pond is a lake in Concord, Massachusetts. The pond became famous when the philosopher Henry David Thoreau, who lived at the pond from 1845 to 1847, wrote the book Walden about his experience in the nature.

Minute Man National Historical Park

Website: http://www.nps.gov/mima

Back in 1775, the revolutionary war between the British and the American colonists broke out at Lexington, Concord. This historical park was built to commemorate the event during that era. Note that minutemen was the name of the colonists' high-speed military unit which, upon call, can gather up and get ready to fight in one minute.
