CONCORD, Mass. (AP) - Musket demonstrations, quill pen writing, camp cooking and other colonial activities are planned at the Concord Museum to commemorate Patriots’ Day.

Patriots’ Day is a state holiday commemorating the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the first battles of the American Revolutionary War. It will be celebrated Monday in Massachusetts.

This year, the historic Wright Tavern will have an open house. The tavern was the headquarters of the minutemen on the morning of April 19, 1775, the date the battles were fought. The open house will be held Saturday from 3 to 5 p.m. and Monday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The museum’s collections include the famous “one, if by land, two, if by sea” Paul Revere lantern, British cannon balls and other Revolutionary War objects.
