April 19, 1775—the "shot heard 'round the world" was fired at the Old North Bridge. The skirmish that began in Concord, MA became a full-fledged war for independence that spread across the British colonies like wild fire.

New exhibits at the North Bridge Visitor Center interpret the contentious relationship between the colonial militia and the King's army and the events that lead up to the confrontation that set off the American Revolution. Interpretive graphics designed as historic murals seamlessly blend the narrative with the historic character of the visitor center. Full scale portraits painted by artist Don Troiani of some of the patriots that fought on that day are featured with artifacts and documents that illuminate their lives.
