Acton 250 Lecture Series Starts September 21st


Noted Historian Prof. Robert Allison Inaugurates the Acton 250 Lecture Series on September 21st with "From Crown Tensions to Tea Parties: The Role of Massachusetts in Shaping the Revolution"

Starting this fall, the Acton 250 Committee will sponsor a series of lectures on the history leading up to the momentous events of 1775 and 1776. The lectures will help us understand what life was like in our community in that era and share the less told stories of residents. 
Please join us on September 21 at 7:30PM at Acton Town Hall for the inaugural lecture. We are thrilled to feature Professor Robert Allison, who will discuss the pivotal events that set the stage for the Boston Tea Party and sparked the American Revolution.
Prof. Allison is renowned for his expertise in American colonial history, and the political, social, and economic factors that converged in the 18th century, leading to the climactic moment in Boston's history. He has taught history at Suffolk University since 1992, when he received his doctorate at Harvard. He is currently the Chair of Revolution 250, a consortium of organizations planning commemorations of the Revolution's 250th anniversary and a life-trustee of the USS Constitution Museum.
