The fiery sermons of the Reverend William Emerson helped push Concordians to take up arms against the British regulars - earning him the title of "A Very Bad Subject of the Crown."
Elizabeth Peabody was a fascinating woman. She founded a publishing house and was a friend to the Transcendentalists. But she was unlucky in love - losing a beau not once, but twice, to her more fortunate sisters.
