Lecture: “Survival: Boston 1630”
March 24, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
In the summer of 1630, a thousand people with dwindling supplies of food and medicine stepped off their boats into the wilderness. They lived in caves or wigwams or tents; food began to run out. In winter, Boston Harbor froze solid for two months.
John Morrison, Trustee of the Partnership of Historic Bostons (PHB), will present an illustrated talk about the first dangerous years when nearly one-half of the original Puritans died or fled back to England. How did they survive in the place that became the City of Boston?
Join in the Upper Fellowship Hall of the First Church of Christ, Congregational at 2:00 pm for refreshments and at 2:30 pm for announcements our guest speaker. Free and open to the public. This event is sponsored by the Bedford Historical Society.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Bedford Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
