Arcadia Publishing - The Founding of Salem: City of Peace


In the 1620s, the land that would one day become the Massachusetts North Shore was a harsh frontier. Native Americans, fishermen and religious exiles struggled to survive, while speculators strived to profit off the vast resources of this New World. Out of the disease, greed and chaos of the era would emerge one of the most unique cities in the world. Learn how a working-class salter named Roger Conant became the first governor of Massachusetts and why Myles Standish tried to end this new colony of fishermen with brute force. Meet the woman who led the Massachusett people through their most trying times but whose name was ultimately lost to recorded history. Join local author Benjamin Shallop as he reveals how a place known as Naumkeag became Salem, the City of Peace.
