A Google-a-Day Puzzle for Dec. 30

Our good friends at Google run a daily puzzle challenge and asked us to help get them out to the geeky masses. Each day’s puzzle will task your googling skills a little more, leading you to Google mastery. Each morning at 12:01 a.m. Eastern time you’ll see a new puzzle, and the previous day’s answer (in invisitext) posted here.

SPOILER WARNING:
We leave the comments on so people can work together to find the answer. As such, if you want to figure it out all by yourself, DON’T READ THE COMMENTS!

Also, with the knowledge that because others may publish their answers before you do, if you want to be able to search for information without accidentally seeing the answer somewhere, you can use the Google-a-Day site’s search tool, which will automatically filter out published answers, to give you a spoiler-free experience.

And now, without further ado, we give you…

TODAY’S PUZZLE:

“Don’t fire until you see the whites of their eyes,” was an order given during an American Revolution battle that was named for the wrong location. Where did the fighting actually occur?

YESTERDAY’S ANSWER (mouseover to see):

Search [Walden Pond Visitor Center] to find that it’s on Walden Street in the city of Concord. Search for [Thoreau birthplace] and find that it’s also in Concord, on Virginia Street. Use the “Get Directions” tool on Google Maps to learn that the distance between the two places is about 3.7 miles.
