Concord, a town to the north-west of Boston, has a key place in US history, as a town shaped by rebellion, militiamen and revolutionary spirit. It is here that around 2,000 militiamen - dubbed “minutemen” for their ability to be ready for action in a moment’s notice - gathered to pursue British troops. Canon attack, horse-back charge and sustained volleys of British fire were met by 2,000 militiamen returning musket fire from behind trees, stone walls, houses and sheds. The town’s North Bridge has significant national importance, as the historical site in the Battle of Concord on the first day of the American War of Independence. When news of the battle reached London, it made a strong statement regarding the grit of patriot forces. Honored in American history today, as the American Revolutionary War’s first military engagement, Concord paved the way for the Liberty and creation of the United States of America.
Today the Massachusetts War sites of Concord are preserved as part of Minute Man National Historical Park: a key attraction for visitors keen to immerse themselves in American history. On the Private Boston Driving Tour to Concord you will learn about the area’s role in the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, from retracing the historic Battle Road Trail as taken by Paul Revere to warn about the attack by British troops. An expert guide will provide the historical and political context to the Revolution and the extraordinary fortitude of the 4,000 men of Lexington and Concord. After visiting Concord's town common, home to poignant Monument Square, visit the Old North Bridge, the historic site of the Battle of Concord, and the first day of the American Revolutionary War. Delve into the fascinating literary history of the area by visiting Author’s Ridge and the home of Louisa May Alcott, author of the classic novel Little Women.
After your tour in Concord finishes, your driver-guide will take you back to Boston and drop you off at your hotel or a central location of your choosing.
Please note: The Old Manse museum is only open on Saturday and Sunday; therefore, if you would like to visit it, schedule a weekend tour. You can pay for this museum visit locally, as it is not included in the tour price.
