HUDSON – A moment of Revolutionary War history will come to Hudson this weekend when the American Heritage Museum is scheduled to host a re-enactment of the Battle of Bunker Hill.

Set for Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24, the event will feature period encampments and re-enactors who will tell the story of the Battle of Bunker Hill.

Pyrotechnic effects within the battle scape will then augment the re-enactment itself.

The re-enactments will take place at 1:30 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.

The actual Battle of Bunker Hill took place in June 1775, amatter of months after the battles of Lexington and Concord.

Learning of British plans to occupy hills overlooking Boston, American troops dug in on Breed’s Hill in modern-day Charlestown. They then clashed with British forces, inflicting heavy losses before retreating after running out of ammunition.

The American Heritage Museum is located at 569 Main Street in Hudson.

The cost of admission to this upcoming reenactment is $30 for adults, $25 for seniors and veterans and $15 children under 12 years of age.
