Acton Minuteman Encampment

April 19 @ 10:00 AM

“I haven’t a man who is afraid to go!” The Acton Minutemen mustered and marched to the North Bridge on the morning of April 19, 1775 where, under the leadership of Captain Isaac Davis, were first in line of 450 Provincials who advanced on the British Regulars.  Both Provincials who died at the North Bridge – Isaac Davis and Abner Hosmer – were Acton Minutemen.  Visit this brave minute company in an encampment outside the Concord Museum on Patriots’ Day and see them prepare for battle!

The health and safety of our staff and visitors is our highest priority.  Participants can visit this outdoor, unenclosed event throughout the day without advanced registration.  Museum staff will enforce capacity limitations for this outdoor gathering as outlined under Massachusetts law.  Visitors and staff will do all that they can to maintain space and be mindful of one another.


Thank you in advance for social distancing and wearing masks at this outdoor event!

This is a free event.

Visit inside the Concord Museum to see Acton Minuteman Abner Hosmer’s powder horn, which he carried into battle with him on April 19, 1775.  Reserve tickets for Museum admission here.  Museum capacity is limited, so please book your timeslot in advance!
