Colonial Marblehead: From Rogues to Revolutionaries

Type: Paperback
Carved out of a rocky and forested wilderness, Marblehead, Massachusetts, grew to become one of the most important fishing ports in the thirteen colonies and, indeed, one of the most significant in the British Empire. Far from the religious hysterics associated with their Salem neighbors, Marbleheaders earned a reputation as a hard-drinking and godless people—people who nonetheless played a significant role in establishing the colonies' independence. In Colonial Marblehead: From Rogues to Revolutionaries, historian and Marblehead resident Lauren Fogle records the story of this grand old town's birth and its significant role in building a nation.
