Nathaniel Peabody Rogers: His Family and Home
Who is the Plymouth, NH native who became one of the leading voices in New England's abolition movement and even offered his home as a stop on the Underground Railroad? Dr. Rebecca Noel introduces you to Nathaniel Peabody Rogers, a Dartmouth graduate and successful lawyer who moved to Concord in 1838 to edit the abolitionist newspaper "Herald of Freedom." Learn the fascinating story of Rogers' life and the family home, which attracted cultured and curious men and women of the time, sheltered slaves making their way to Canada, and is now the site of the Silver Center for the Arts.
