The Tewksbury Patch reminds us that the Tewksbury Historical Society’s annual fundraiser is scheduled for Saturday May 19, 2012 at the Tewksbury Senior Center. The historical theatrical presentation will focus on author, poet, philosopher, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, surveyor, historian and leading transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau. While Walden may be his most famous book, it was his work A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers written in 1849 that brought him near-by the Town of Tewksbury.
