SOLD OUT! Reenactment of a Meeting of the Provincial Congress 1774

July 07, 2019 11:00 AM — 2:00 PM

Overview

SOLD OUT! Thank you for your interest in our Reenactment of a Meeting of the Provincial Congress 1774 in historic Wright Tavern.  Sign up for Summer Night Beer Tasting and Talk to get a taste of history in Wright Tavern!

The Boston Tea Party and the Boston Massacre have thrown the Massachusetts Bay Colony into chaos. By 1774 all representative government has been banned and General Thomas Gage is suppressing the rights of the colonists.  A group of brave and civic-minded colonists decides to meet anyway. They gather at the Wright Tavern in Concord to debate taxes, their rights, and how to respond to the outrages of the English Parliament.

Muster up your colonial spirit and join us in a reenactment of a meeting of the Provincial Congress that led up to April 19, 1775. Visitors will participate in the program, engaging the debates that animated the colonists in the months before the beginning of the Revolution.

This program is in partnership with Minute Man National Historical Park and Revolution 250.

Free to the public.  Due to the limited capacity in Wright Tavern, please register here to guarantee seating.
