Concord Museum's Free Fun Friday Event

Friday August 6th, the Concord Museum in Concord, Massachusetts will be participating in Free Fun Fridays. Not only is the Museum admission free, but they have a special program planned for the day that highlights their current exhibition When Duty Whispers: Concord and the Civil War.

The reenactors from the 28th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, the Irish Brigade, will be setting up a Civil War camp on the front lawn of the Museum from 10AM-3PM. Visitors can ask questions and find out about life in the camp. There are musket demonstrations planned for 11AM and 1PM and a visit from Fredrick Douglas at 2PM at no cost to the visitors. Check with the Museum to confirm all details. I am just passing along what I have learned to date.

This is a great free chance for families to experience a bit of living history in the area. Unfortunately, do to some scheduling conflicts I do not think I will be able to make this trip. We are hoping to make it to the Concord Museum as part of our history tour this summer.
