On April 18, 1775, two lanterns were hung from the steeple of the Old North Church, launching what would become the American Revolutionary War. Signaling the departure of British regulars “by sea,” the two lanterns have come to represent the resolve and ingenuity of the American spirit. Today, Old North welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors each year to learn about the history and values of Boston’s early revolutionaries. Every year, Old North commemorates the hanging of the lanterns with an evening of history and an inspiring address from the year's keynote speaker, David Rubenstein, co-founder and co-CEO of Carlyle Group.

Join us Sunday, April 16 2017 at Old North Church to celebrate this day.
