First Religious Society releases book
The Historical Committee of the First Religious Society in Newburyport recently released a book, “Where We Stood: A New England Church and the American Revolution, 1764-1783.”
The historical book “examines the decisions made during that period by the society’s parishioners, their friends, and their neighbors,” the committee members wrote in a statement.
Through their research, the committee found that “much of the population was willing to risk their lives, the lives of their families, and their often-large fortunes by actively supporting the opposition to escalating British audacity — despite the fact that their disobedience might be considered an act of treason, punishable by death.”
The book can be found in Newburyport at Jabberwocky Bookshop, The Book Rack, the Historical Society of Old Newbury, the Custom House Maritime Museum, and at the First Religious Society, Unitarian Universalist.
