Thursday, May 24, 2012

 

Memorial Day nearly is upon us, and that means a long weekend for most in Central Massachusetts. If you're looking for some fun and interesting ways to spend your extra day off, GoLocalWorcester has you covered with the top places to use your WOO Card over the next few days. Whether you want to get freshly cut wool, or try some fine wine, there is plenty to do when you WOO.

A Tempest in New England lecture at the Worcester Historical Museum

Don’t miss this fascinating lecture with Dr. Erik J. Chaput, detailing the history of the often forgotten 1842 Dorr Rebellion in Rhode Island, one of the most significant political and constitutional events before the Civil War. Chaput will explain how the politics surrounding Thomas Wilson Dorr's attempt at extralegal reform in Rhode Island led to the active involvement of prominent New England abolitionists, including Abby Kelley, Stephen Foster and Frederick Douglass
