Full description
Explore the battles of Lexington and Concord on this self-guided driving tour in Concord. Go step by step through the dramatic battle that kicked off the American Revolution. Enjoy the flexibility of a tour via an app that functions as a guide, narrator, and map in one. Begin your journey at North Bridge, where the most pivotal moment of the entire battle took place. Learn the background on what set the stage for this conflict and why the Americans thought the British were already burning Lexington. Then, hear about the first major engagement between British and American forces, including the famous “shot heard ‘round the world.” See how the tide of battle swung against the British and watch their retreat. Next, get to know American Major John Buttrick and enter the center of Concord. Admire the historic surroundings and listen to striking accounts of how things went from bad to worse for the redcoats. Follow the route of action alongside Battle Road and see skirmish after skirmish as the British soldiers make their arduous, bloody trek toward the safety of Boston. Watch the American militiamen force the British into one trap after another in one of the most unlikely upsets in battlefield history. Stop by the site where Paul Revere was captured. Hear the facts about his often misunderstood Midnight Ride. Learn who exactly the Minute Men were and how they were able to fight off the British Empire. Finally, finish where it all began: Lexington. Witness the final, tense sequence of the battle play out, then hear about the earth-shaking aftermath of the dramatic encounter. Throughout the tour, see animated videos to visualize what you cannot see, such as snapshots from different centuries or interior rooms. Benefit from a tour developed by local guides, creative writers, and professional voice artists.

Overall a good and quick orientation. Directions at the beginning were a bit confusing and the narration was somewhat off-sink with the sights. It started before we got to each stop. Road was clear and we were going the speed limit.
