The American Revolution was a defining moment in world history and the Concord Museum will commemorate Patriots’ Day on Saturday, April 15 and Monday, April 17, with demonstrations, living history with Concord Minutemen, a walking tour, colonial crafts, and gallery talks.
As part of the Museum’s Patriot Day celebration – and for the first time this year – the historic
Wright Tavern will have an open house on Saturday, April 15, 3-5 p.m. and on Monday, April 17, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. The Wright Tavern is the location where some of the Committees of the Provincial Congress met on the eve of the Revolution and it was also the headquarters of the Minutemen in the early morning of April 19, 1775. Captain Brown’s Minutemen and the Concord Museum’s staff will be there to help you learn more about this National Historic Landmark.
On Saturday, the Concord Museum will host free living history with Captain Brown’s Company as they camp out on the Museum’s lawn. Watch musket demonstrations, cartridge rolling, cooking, and other activities as these Minutemen prepare for the upcoming battle with the British. On both days the Museum will host a variety of gallery talks, demonstrations, and activities.
