PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Former Vice President Joe Biden and others will be on hand when the Museum of the American Revolution hosts its grand opening Wednesday.

The date also marks the 242nd anniversary of the “shot heard ‘round the world” that ignited the Revolutionary War in 1775.

The opening ceremony will take place at various areas of Philadelphia’s historic area including a tribute at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier of the Revolution at Washington Square and other events at Independence Hall and, finally, the official dedication and ribbon-cutting at the museum’s outdoor plaza.
