Wilmington Residents Invited To Free Outdoor ‘Living History’ Performance At Tewksbury Library On Tuesday, August 10

Below is a press release from the Tewksbury Public Library:

TEWKSBURY, MA — Enjoy a free one-man play this Tuesday, August 10, 2021, from 6:30pm to 7:30pm, on the back lawn of the Tewksbury Public Library.

Bruce Chester — an actor, comedian and veteran — will perform as Sergeant William Harvey Carney. Sgt. Carney carried the flag for the Mass. 54th infantry during the Union attack on Fort Wagner in Charleston, South Carolina (also told in the 1989 film: Glory). Sgt. Carney was injured, received the Medal of Honor and became a letter carrier in New Bedford, MA.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets or chairs. Overflow parking is available in the field across from the library’s parking lot, and in the hospital’s parking lots. There is no parking allowed along Hospital Road.

Uncomfortable in large crowds? Out of town? Tewksbury Telemedia will live-stream each concert on the Town’s YouTube page and its local access television stations.

The show is free of charge. No registration is required. Co-sponsored by the Friends of the Library and the Tewksbury Cultural Council. Have a question? Contact librarian Robert Hayes at rhayes@tewksburypl.org or 978-640-4490 x 205.

The Tewksbury Public Library is located at 300 Chandler Street, at the corner of Chandler and Main Street (Route 38).
