April 19, 1775—the “shot heard ’round the world” was fired at Concord’s North Bridge—a skirmish that grew into a war for independence. When the colonial militia fired on the soldiers of their king at North Bridge, was this an act of liberty or treason?

New exhibits at the North Bridge Visitor Center interpret the events that led up to the confrontation that set off the American Revolution. A new film dramatizes the battle and new features added to a terrain model help visitors understand the sequence of events on that fateful day. Interpretive graphics designed as murals seamlessly integrate the stories with the historic character of the visitor center architecture. Graphic panels in the library are designed to showcase artifacts inside the room’s existing casework.
