6:30pm The Last Puritans Lecture at Old North Church
Margaret Bendroth will present, The Last Puritans: Mainline Protestants and the Power of the Past, for the Summer Speaker Series. The New England Puritans have had a powerful hold on the American imagination, as everything from the founders of democracy to witch-burning killjoys. The Congregational churches, whose tall white spires still dot the New England countryside, took enormous pride in their Puritan and Pilgrim roots, especially as, in the years after the Civil War, Thanksgiving became a premiere American holiday. But, as they quickly discovered, history can be an unwieldy burden. Please join us for a reception and book signing following the lecture. Free tickets can be reserved here.
2. On this day…
- In 1789: James Madison introduces a proposed Bill of Rights in the U.S. House of Representatives.
