The history of the Jackson family, like many other African American families and individuals, is an example of those whose lives are threads interwoven into the history of this country. Much more than a family history, this history is written so that historical substance is given to the role African Americans played in the development of the life of our country. This fascinating story takes readers to the African American roots that are buried deep in many small northern towns of Connecticut and New York. During the 1700s, African American slaves, and often freemen, in colonial New England and... View more info

In the early part of this century, the author of this book was the head of a Massachusetts patriotic society. As the 300th anniversary of the Mayflower landing approached, he knew that celebrations of that event would be appropriately elaborate.

Weeks recognized that the Pilgrim settlers of New England could not have survived and prospered... View more info
