The Fifth of March Anniversary Orations – Speak Out!
Co-Sponsored by History Department, Suffolk University
Each year from 1772 to 1775, massive gatherings of men, women and children were held at Old South Meeting House to commemorate the anniversary of the Boston Massacre, with rousing speeches by patriots John Hancock, Benjamin Church and Dr. Joseph Warren. Join us to hear selected excerpts of these speeches, performed by an inter-generational group in the grand hall where the orations took place 240 years ago! Audience members will also have the option to participate and read from a selection of excerpts.
This event is FREE and open the public. Registration requested at http://osmhmarch11-15.bpt.me.
