Glory for George, Freedom Unfinished Weekend July 13-16


This weekend’s series of high engagement events for visitors and locals alike seeks to honor the legacy of Concord native son, George, Washington Dugan on the 160th Anniversary and his heroic sacrifice as a member of the Massachusetts, 54th the first all-black regiment of the Civil War. This weekend seeks to tie together events of the American Revolution, and those of the War of the Rebellion, and show how the concept of freedom, the seeking of freedom, and the winning of freedom is a task of many generations and it is yet unfinished. This opportunity allows for public visibility and exposure to learn about and honor a history that may be new to them but is essential for them and their understanding of Concord’s role in securing freedom for all people.
