Description: WALK IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF WORCESTERS REVOLUTIONARIES - VIRTUALLY!
From Worcester's Meetinghouse, near the site of today's City Hall to what we now know as Lincoln Square, Worcester patriots led Massachusetts and later the country toward Revolution. Auspiciously in September 1774, patriots from across the region assembled along Main Street to reject rule under Parliament's Massachusetts Government Act, close the county courts, and shame their loyalist elite neighbors. Now you can join Worcester Historical Museum and walk in their footsteps, as they forced wellborn local defenders of royal government to walk a gauntlet of common men intent on defending their liberty or as they spread their revolutionary ideas between the town's taverns and meetinghouse.
