J.L. Bell who runs boston1775.net - history, analysis, and unabashed gossip about Revolutionary New England - will speak on William Dawes. Nearly everyone knows of Paul Revere’s famous midnight ride but most are unaware another rider took a dangerous route over the land, through Roxbury, to get to Concord that night too. [More details soon!]
Join us at the First Church in Roxbury, 10 Putnam Street, Roxbury to learn more about this lesser-known hero of pre-Revolutionary Boston.
This event is co-sponsored by the Roxbury Historical Society, the Unitarian Universalist Urban Ministry and the JPHS. Free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
