The Massachusetts Historical Society, Minute Man National Park, the National Heritage Museum, and other sites in Lexington, Concord, and Boston are pleased to offer a new one-week institute for schoolteachers, fun
In the spring of 1775, the towns of Lexington and Concord became targets, scenes, and symbols of actions which would ignite a war culminating in the birth of a new country. In those towns were people caught at the crossroads of Revolution. "At the Crossroads of Revolution: Lexington and Concord in 1775" is designed to immerse our participants in the evocative 18th-century landscapes of those towns, as well as the port city of Boston, to examine the decisions and dilemmas involved in the events of 1775 and the subsequent interpretations and uses of those events.
The workshop will be offered twice in 2010: July 18-23 and August 1-6. Applications must be postmarked by March 2, 2010. For more information about the workshop, including application guidelines, visit the Massachusetts Historical Society’s website: http://www.masshist.org/crossroads or contact the Society’s Education Department at (617)646-0557 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
