The final thing we saw in Concord was the Old North Bridge.
It is part of the Minute Man National Historical Park. This is where the opening battle of the American Revolution took place on April 19, 1775.
The Old North Bridge is famous for being the location of the “shot heard around the world.”
The original bridge was long gone, but this replica from 1956 was restored in 2005 and is a few hundred yards from the original location.
Below is Daniel Chester French’s statue, Minute Man. This statue is on the western bank of the Concord River and looks toward the bridge.
In 1910, residents of Concord placed a plaque to mark the graves of British soldiers who died at the bridge:
Wow, we saw a lot! Thanks Tonya for a great day!
