Forgotten Voices: The Hidden History of a New England Meetinghouse (Paperback)Carolyn Wakeman (author)
Paperback 200 Pages / Published: 31/10/2019
- Coming soon
Told through the words of those whose lives the meetinghouse shaped, Facing the Past uncovers a hidden past. It begins with the displacement of Indigenous people in the area before Europeans arrived, continues with disputes over worship and witchcraft in the early colonial settlement, and looks ahead to the use of Connecticut's most iconic white church as a refuge and sanctuary. Relying on the resources of local archives, the contents of family attics, and the extensive records of the Congregational Church, this community portrait details the long ignored genocide and enslaved people and reshapes prevailing ideas about history's makers.
