Honoring the Memory of Prince Estabrook-One of the First Americans to be Wounded in Battle

On this Memorial Day, Camp Constitution wants to honor the memory of Prince Estabrook.  Hal Shurtleff and Rev. Steve Craft of Camp Constitution visit the Prince Estabrook Monument in front of the Buckman Tavern, and across from Lexington Green  in Lexington, Massachusetts.  They discuss the heroics of Prince Estabrook, a member of the Lexington Militia who was one of the first Americans to be injured in battle.  He answered the alarm, and fought in the Battle of Lexington and Concord.  At the time of the battle, he was a slave.  He enlisted in the Continental Army and after the war, he gained his freedom.
