Groton Patriots 1775-1776 to Explain Their Positions on Revolution
Just what did the ordinary Groton inhabitant think about their countrymen rising up against the King of England? The Freedom’s Way National Heritage Association in cooperation with the American Antiquarian Society and our local Old Groton Meeting House Preservation Fund and the Groton History Center invite you to a dramatization of real Groton residents of the period talking about their lives at this crucial time in our nation’s history.
On Saturday, April 13 at 7pm at the Meeting House (now the First Parish Church) local citizens will speak the parts of Jacob Ames, Jonas Cutler, Anna Dana, Ezekiel Nutting, Jr., and Susanna Prescott, all free citizens, and Phillis Sartell, an enslaved resident. Their thoughts are taken from real historical documents that still exist. What did they decide - stay loyal to the Crown or declare for Independence?
This event is free and open to all. Please watch for more information about Patriots’ Paths Groton by flyer and on our websites.
