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 on September 7, 2014. 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.
The book we'll be reading is The First American Revolution: Before Lexington and Concord, written by Ray Raphael, and recently reprinted in paperback. The library will have multiple copies for loan. The book discussion will take place in the summer; the book discussion date is yet to be determined.
