Preparing for Winter – Preparing for War: Event Cancelled

Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 16-17, 2021
Saturday 10:00 am – Sunday 4:00 pm

Free and open to the public

Update: This event has been cancelled. The Delta variant has caused a surge in new cases along with new requirements for masks and social distancing outside as well as inside regardless of vaccination status. You can read the full NPS announcement here.

Join us this fall for two days of special living history programming at Hartwell Tavern and the Captain William Smith House in Minute Man National Historical Park.

Autumn in Colonial New England was a time of change and transition when many gathered to share the fruits of summer labor and prepare to survive the coming winter. In 1774 it was also a time of preparation for the coming conflict; Colonial Militia mustered to train their soldiers, British Regulars drilled on the Boston Common, and both sides scrambled to secure supplies. As Colonists ferried weapons and goods into Concord, local families brought in their harvests to be preserved as food sufficient to feed their family through the coming year.

This event will feature both civilian and military living history volunteers who will bring this difficult period to life.

Parking is available at the Hartwell Tavern parking lot; if this lot is full, follow signage or the instructions of parking attendants. Visit the NPS webpage for more information on parking and directions. For more information about the event, please visit the Minute Man National Historical Park Facebook page.
