At 4 p.m. on Saturday, the Bostonian Society will help re-enact the riots that broke out on Aug. 15, 1775 in Boston. As. J.L. Bell writes:

No actual mansions will be harmed in this event, but reenactors in period costume are invited to march raucously from the corner of Washington and Winter Street (near the Downtown Crossing T Station) to the Old State House, calling for [then Boston stamp agent Andrew] Oliver’s resignation.
