In the Footsteps of a Civil War Hero – A Walking Tour of General Gordon’s Framingham

Flag Day – June 14, 2015

Framingham Centre Common & Edgell Memorial Library

General Gordon Walking Tour

With Framingham’s iconic Centre Common as the backdrop, this guided tour will feature four living history tableaux that will bring the period before, during and after the Civil War to life.  This tour is truly a walk back in time with so many of the buildings and settings of General Gordon’s childhood and later life intact.  It will end at the Edgell Memorial Library where much of General Gordon’s possessions are on display in addition to the flag carried by the 13th Regiment through battles like Bull Run, Antietam, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg.  Remember – it will be flag day and we will include a special salute to this beautifully preserved symbol of Framingham’s contribution to the Civil War.

Reserve tickets today.  Continue reading
