A New England Primer:

The Literature, History, and Theology of Boston and Concord, Massachusetts
June 15-21, 2015

From Colonial Times until the American Civil War, Boston and Concord were the epicenters of American history, literature, and theology. Join our small group of travelers as we rediscover the importance of these two cities—one large, one small—and their connections to the Puritan founders, the Revolutionary War, and the Transcendentalists. Some of the planned activities include: walking the Freedom Trail with local historian Charlie Bahne; discovering Margaret Fuller’s and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s connections to Boston and Cambridge; enjoying an exclusive lecture by Dr. Robert Gross, a national authority on Concord, the Minutemen, and the Transcendentalists; and visiting such literary sites as Hawthorne’s The Old Manse, Emerson’s home, Alcott’s Orchard House, and Thoreau’s Walden Pond. Learn of the shifts in nineteenth-century Protestant theology as you visit Concord’s First Parish Church and Trinitarian Congregational Church, and travel to Fruitlands, the site of a nineteenth-century utopian society. We have also set aside plenty of time for you to explore Boston and Concord on your own, enjoy the cuisine, and simply relax in these historic locales.
