Excerpt from A History of New England, Vol. 1: Containing Historical and Descriptive Sketches of the Counties, Cities and Principal Towns of the Six New England States, Including, in Its List of Contributors, More Than Sixty Literary Men and Women, Representing Every County in New England; Illustrated

The history of New England is invested with a peculiar interest. Its honored antecedents, the extraordinary circumstances of its early settlement, and the numerous vicissitudes attending its later development; the rare intelligence, sturdy Virtue and indomitable energy of its primitive population; the fact, moreover, that the sons of this motherland have, for generations, been carrying her ideas and institutions, as well as her spirit of enterprise, into the new and opening regions of the great West, serve to attach to this section of our common country. An exceptional importance, and to invest its annals with a corresponding significance and charm.

For not the native New Englander alone, or even the native American, but for all true lovers of liberty, and of free institutions everywhere, the history of this nursing spot of freedom, as also the annals of the people who contributed, in so eminent a degree, to the success of this notable experiment in local self-government, cannot, we feel confident, but prove a theme of deep and enduring interest.
