As darkness descends upon the North Bridge battlefield we invite you to come and reflect on the events of April 19, 1775 and the meaning of liberty. The evening ceremony will feature a lantern-light procession, poetry, music, and a recitation of the names of the soldiers who gave their lives on that “ever-memorable” 19th of April.

Please note, if you would like to participate in the procession at 7:50 p.m. we ask you bring your own enclosed candle lantern – real candles only – no flashlights or LED lights in the procession please.
