Joseph Vanacore is a sophomore in the Honors Program at Assumption University in Worcester, Massachusetts. He is double majoring in History and Political Science. He is also a member of the Daniel Patrick Moynihan Scholars Group as well as its accompanying Model Senate. Joseph plans to attend law school and hopes to one day have a political career. A self-described “history nerd,” Joseph has always had a passion for history of all periods, though Revolutionary America is one of his favorite eras. Growing up in North Attleborough, Massachusetts, Joseph always felt a local connection to important historical events like the American Revolution and King Philip’s War, and he values the importance of preserving, sharing, and understanding these historical narratives. Joseph made his contributions to the Adverts 250 Project and the Slavery Adverts 250 Project while enrolled in HIS 359 Revolutionary America, 1763-1815, in Fall 2021.
