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, Dr. Benjamin Church and Dr. Joseph Warren. Hear selected excerpts of these speeches, performed by an inter-generational group including students, actors, and historians, in the grand hall where the orations took place nearly 250 years ago. Audience members can join the fun, reading along from a program script and performing a short excerpt if inspired!
