Description


Carved out of a rocky wilderness, Marblehead grew to become one of the most important 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 addition to being the fishing capital of Massachusetts, Marblehead is also often referred to as the birthplace of the American Navy, and even the site of George Washington's famed crossing of the Delaware River. 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.
