Concord Civil War Walking Tour

Although best known for its famous authors and the “shot heard ‘round the world,” Concord also offers a fascinating connection to our Civil War. On this 90 minute-long walking tour, you’ll hear what the town’s Abolitionists did before 1861 to bring awareness to others of the issue of slavery, then, once the war began, how the residents of Concord responded to our national crisis.

Following the walking tour, visitors will have the option of going to the Concord Armory, where the Massachusetts National Guard Museum is located, to see its excellent collection of Civil War artifacts and memorabilia.

Tours run on scheduled dates each month and by private tour request. Reservations are required and no walk-up sales are possible due to staffing. Thank you for your understanding.
