Usually the marathon overshadows Patriots' Day itself. Before the pandemic, you might have heard more folks calling today Marathon Monday than Patriots' Day, at least here in Boston. As we celebrate Patriots' Day for the second consecutive year without the marathon, we talk about what it is we're celebrating today, and how our history fits into our current moment. We're joined by Tom Putnam, Executive Director of the Concord Museum, and Stacey Fraser, Collections and Outreach Manager for the Lexington Historical Society.

This segment aired on April 19, 2021.
