within the first many years of the yankee republic, Mary White, a shopkeeper's spouse from rural Boylston, Massachusetts, saved a diary. Woven into its checklist of daily occasions is a amazing story of clash and transformation in small-town lifestyles. Sustained via its Puritan historical past, gentry management, and feel of universal solid, Boylston had survived the upheaval of revolution and the construction of the hot kingdom. Then, in one new release of wrenching change,the city and tis humans descended into contentious fight. analyzing the tumultuous Jacksonian period on the intimate point of kin and neighborhood, Mary Babson Fuhrer brings to lifestyles the complex construction of a brand new social, political, and financial order situated on person striving and voluntary institutions in an expansive nation.

Blending relations files and a wealthy trove of neighborhood information, Fuhrer examines the "age of revolutions" in the course of the lens of a rural neighborhood that used to be swept into the networks of an increasing and urbanizing New England zone. This finely specified background lends new intensity to our figuring out of a key transformative second in American history.
