The March 1775 Boston Massacre Oration: Asserting America’s Place in History
March 7, 2013
In a tense March 1775 speech, before both hostile British soldiers and thousands of sympathetic townspeople at Old South Meeting House, Joseph Warren crisply defined Patriotic grievances and asserted a vision of American Liberty. Sporting a toga during the widely reprinted and influential speech, Warren delivered a compelling view of America’s past, its immediate challenges, and its future. Join author and historian Dr. Samuel Forman for a unique, illustrated discussion of Dr. Warren’s costumed speech and what it suggests about the Patriot vision for America.
