Northborough: Worcester Revolution of 1774 discussion at Northborough Library

Northborough – The Northborough Free Library, 34 Main St., will hold a book discussion Tuesday, Aug. 12, at 7 p.m. The book to be discussed is “The First American Revolution: Before Lexington and Concord,” written by Ray Raphael, and recently reprinted in paperback. A limited number of copies of the book will be available for loan in early July. Jack Sharp, a library trustee, will facilitate the discussion.

 

Northborough is joining a county-wide read to commemorate the Worcester Revolution of 1774, which will culminate in a re-enactment and dramatic presentation on Worcester Common Sunday, Sept. 7. Northborough was one of 37 towns whose militiamen marched into Worcester and forced British authority out of Worcester County, seven months before the battles at Lexington and Concord, and two years before America's Declaration of Independence.
