“A spring vacation must do...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

See the re-enactment of the minutemen marching to the north bridge in period dress/fife and drum corp., with the gun volley off the bridge to remember those who died fighting for the belief of freedom. It didn't start here, but it did have a signifigant turn of events later.
When? On April 19 each year. Where? Just outside of the town of Concord Ma. at the Miniteman National Park. Is wheel chair accessable.
Is a very somber site to witness and experience.

“Not a whole lot to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

Not that much there. Good to see once, but probably wouldn't go back again.
