From a bizarre French and Indian War battle to the state's first impeachment trial, It Happened in New Hampshire looks at intriguing people and episodes from the history of the Granite State. -Relive the humorous, not-so-adventurous "camping" trip by a group of America's most famous industrial titans in 1919, whose necessities included a personal chef and an electric generator. -Find out how one woman's kind act toward a young Native American years later spared her and her children from certain death during a ruthless revenge attack on settlers in a Dover garrison. -Learn how concern to protect the White Mountains from environmental degradation contributed to the establishment of national forests across the United States. -Discover how a fearless force of thirty soldiers refused surrender and sucessfully held off an army of 700 French militia and Indian allies at a remote outpost. -Read about how two colonial governors--who, coincidentally, were close relatives--shocked their citizens with nearly equally scandalous, completely unexpected marriages.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Stillman RogersPublisher: Globe Pequot PressPublished: 12/01/2020ISBN: 9781493040353Pages: 248Weight: 0.65lbsSize: 8.50h x 5.50w x 0.53d
