The Shot Heard Round the World: April 19, 1775 followed an hour-by-hour account of the actions of British Regulars and Patriots on April 19th, 1775, presenting a chronological and geographical timeline of the day and representing many of the communities surrounding Boston – Lexington, Concord, Lincoln, Arlington (Menotomy), and Cambridge – whose militias played a prominent role in the day-long engagement. Organized by Concord Museum curator David Wood and militaria expert Joel Bohy, the exhibition drew from the Museum’s important collection, as well as a number of private and institutional collections.
