Celebrate Sudbury's Role in The 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.
April 7 featured towns: Acton, Bedford, Billerica, Lexington, Lincoln, Maynard, Sudbury, Wayland. April 14 featured towns: Arlington, Belmont, Cambridge, Medford, Waltham, Watertown.
Whether you live or work in one of the towns listed above, or just want to learn more about the early events of the American Revolution, please join the Concord Museum for special virtual and in-person events celebrating the people and communities that answered the alarm in 1775.
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.
