Lexington’s Spinning Protest

Lexington’s Spinning Protest

Saturday, August 31, 12 – 4 PM, Harrington Road (across from the Battle Green)  
 
On the exact 250th anniversary of the 1769 spinning protest in Lexington, come to a reenactment of that important event in its original location! There will be spinners in period dress, interpreters sharing information about the craft of spinning, the political climate of the time and the British goods boycott that sparked the 1769 spinning bee. Plus, a preview of our 2020 Buckman Tavern exhibit on women and political protest.  
 
Free and open to the public!
