Shutdown Averted, Historical Concord Reenactment Stays Canceled

CONCORD (CBS) – Even though the government shutdown has been averted, it’s still having an impact here locally. Saturday’s Revolutionary War reenactment in the town of Concord will remain canceled.

They were scheduled to kick off a series of Patriots Day events by recreating a battle at Minuteman Historical Park.

Rather than risk it, town officials canceled the event because they weren’t sure whether Congress would reach a deal in time to keep park rangers and other government workers on the clock for the event.
