Each fall, the City of Taunton, Massachusetts' Liberty and Union Weekend commemorates the events of October 21, 1774. On that date, Taunton became the first community in the American colonies to raise a flag in stated opposition to British rule. That flag - the "Liberty and Union" flag - flies proudly over our great City to this day.
Liberty and Union Weekend 2014 took place October 16-19. Below are links to some coverage of the Weekend by the Taunton Daily Gazette:
