Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788442589, CD-ROM)

This rare history by a youth of twenty-seven comprised only 112 pages in pamphlet form. But it's so replete with details of Concord's first 97 years, the town government purchased copies for every family. "The circumstances attending the first settlement, the hardships endured by the settlers, and their frequent exposure to Indian warfare; the massacre by the Indians and their depredations upon the property of the inhabitants; and the tedious and perplexing controversy with the proprietors of Bow-were all deemed subjects of sufficient importance to interest the people of this town." This volume begins with the annals of the town, the history of the churches and religious societies and the topography of the area. The author then presents biographical sketches of Sir Benjamin Thompson, Thomas W. Thompson, Timothy Walker, Dr. Philip Carrigain, Rev. Israel Evans, Col. Thomas Stickney, Capt. Nathaniel Abbot, Capt. Joshua Abbot, John Bradley, Deacon John Kimball and Lt. Richard Herbert and finishes with the memoir of the Penacook Indians.
