On July 4, 2014, the Worcester Historical Society will offer a new feature for our already amazing holiday: Worcester Voices: Civil War Era. 

At 5:30 p.m  six local citizens of our little community will don period costume and portray six people who had an important role in the War Between the States. The brief presentations will be made at the Village Cemetery at the grave site of each of the individuals: 

  • Plummer and Calvin Richardson, members of the 13th Regiment who fought at Gettysburg
  • Captain Edward Hall, killed at Cedar Creek, October 19, 1864
  • Mrs. Lemuel Hutchinson, the wife of Captain Hutchinson and mother of Willy who died while his father was in action
  • Mrs. Mary Hinkson, mother of sharpshooter Calvin Hinkson who was killed by a shot through the head
  • Harriet Hinkson Holmes, sister of Calvin who was the last surviving Vermont Civil War nurse

Several of these amateur actors are ancestors of the characters they are portraying. Parking is available across from the cemetery. Donations are requested.
