Town Meeting: Let Your Voice Be Heard!
June 25 @ 3:30 PM
In January 1774 Concord residents were faced with some difficult decisions. A large quantity of tea was destroyed in Boston Harbor a few weeks before. Do they distance themselves from those “Sons of Liberty” who destroy private property? Or do they stand with them against the British government and accept the consequences? We invite you to debate revolutionary issues with Concord residents of 1774, portrayed by park staff and volunteers. The issues we will be discussing are taken from an actual Concord meeting warrant from that time. In the spirit of a New England town meeting, we will vote after debating each issue. Afterwards we will compare our votes with how the town voted in 1774. Saturday, June 25, 3:30 p.m., 1 hour, at North Bridge. Repeats Aug. 20.
