In 2014, the Worcester, Vermont Historical Society decided to portray some of its illustrious deceased citizens as a part of the popular Fourth of July festivities. Donning period dress, various community members stood by the appropriate gravestone in the Village cemetery, sharing a historically accurate script composed by members of the Society. Humor and tragedy are woven into the stories even as they were lived by the characters depicted. This text contains the scripts for these presentations as well as two additional scripts.
