cnlibrarian I'm standing on this very spot right now, almost exactly 240 years after shots were fired - with the Old Manse in the background, where Emerson wrote and the Hawthornes lived and loved - so many layers of life to take in!

Detail from Fitz Henry Lane's ca. 1845 #lithograph of the battleground at Concord, which I saw recently at the wonderful @nypl Prints Division #lexingtonandconcord #oldmanse #print #americanrevolution #ralphwaldoemerson #nathanielhawthorne #nature #minutemen #americanhistory #thoreau

thetrustees Looking for a fun weekend adventure? The Old Manse in Concord, home to two American Revolutions, is brushing off the winter cobwebs and opening its doors this weekend for walk-in tours. Join Curator Tom Beardsley for a tour unlike any you've experienced. Open Saturdays and Sundays only until Patriots Day. http://bit.ly/1CcoeeA. #oldmanse #visitma #visitnewengland #thetrustees #historicnewengland #northshore 1mon
