Sunday, October 2, 2016, 1 P.M. WORCESTER REVOLUTION OF 1774 CELEBRATION Program
The Massachusetts Charter had been revoked. Citizens of the Province were stripped of the right to vote and hold town offices. Two years before the signing of the Declaration of Independence, 4,622 militiamen from 37 towns marched down Main Street in Worcester, shut down the Crown‐controlled county courthouse and, without firing a shot, forced each Royal official to recant the coercive acts and their allegiance to British Parliament. The Worcester Revolution ended British rule in Central Massachusetts and spawned the demise of British rule across the commonwealth outside Boston. To commemorate this event, Worcester Revolution 1774 is presenting an afternoon-long schedule of multiple activities in the Salisbury Cultural District which surrounds Tuckerman Hall, including talks and demonstrations in the Hall.
