CELEBRATING NORTHBOROUGH’S PAST & PRESENT: A SERIES OF HISTORICAL PRESENTATIONS
Date: May 24
Time: 6:30 PM
Presenter: Gary Hylander, PhD
As Northborough celebrates its 250th anniversary, please join us as we discuss a series of historical events that have engaged the townspeople of Northborough from the days of the American Revolution to the present. Our approach will
be topical rather than a textbook like chronological survey. Gary Hylander, PhD, brings history to life and has always gotten rave reviews for his talks at the Senior Center.
The following description will be the topic of the May presentation: Lincoln’s election to the presidency
in 1860 led to the secession of eleven slave states from the Union and the creation of the Confederate States
of America. A long bloody Civil War followed, the results of which have roiled American politics for decades.
As part of our discussion we will pay special attention to the Gettysburg Address. In this Address, Lincoln
spoke to the meaning of the war and assured the nation that government “of the people, by the people and
for the people shall not perish.” We are very grateful to the Friends of the Northborough Senior Center
for funding this series!
