April 6 7:00 PMThe Battles of April 19, 1775

April 19, 1775 was a pivotal day in the founding of our nation as it marked the first armed engagements between the British Regulars and the Colonial “Minutemen” on Lexington Green, the Old North Bridge in Concord, and other locations between there and Boston. This was indeed the beginning of the Revolutionary War, and the first step in the birth of our new nation.

The Concord Museum has recently completed a $1.2 million permanent exhibition that brings to life this conflict in engaging, emotional ways through powerful animation, artifacts, recordings, and story-telling.

Importantly, those stories are not just about Concord but are equally about the surrounding towns from which the Provincials converged to the battle sites.

The Concord Museum will be offering a free virtual tour and program on Tuesday, April 6 at 7 p.m. as well as two separate in-person nights on April 7 and April 14, 5:00-8:00 p.m. For the in-person nights, they have divided them into “east” and “west” groupings, but anyone is free to attend either session—both of which will involve timed ticketing and full COVID protocols.
