✏African American Historic Burial Grounds and Gravesites of New England Book Summary : Evidence of the early history of African Americans in New England is found in the many old cemeteries and burial grounds in the region, often in hidden or largely forgotten locations. This unique work covers the burial sites of African Americans--both enslaved and free--in each of the New England states, and uncovers how they came to their final resting places. The lives of well known early African Americans are discussed, including Venture Smith and Elizabeth Freeman, as well as the lives of many ordinary individuals--military veterans, business men and women, common laborers and children. The author's examination of burial sites and grave markers reveals clues that help document the lives of black New Englanders from the 1640s to the early 1900s.

✏Elizabeth Yates Book Summary : Elizabeth Yates was a fighter. She was determined to become a writer even as a young child. Belonging to an affluent family in Buffalo, NewYork, her parents took for granted that Elizabeth would make her debut in the city's high society. She wanted none of that. It was quite a struggle to go against the wish of her parents, but her persistence finally won. She was then allowed to go to New York City to begin her life as a writer. Her marriage to William McGreal took her to England where she spent ten years traveling and writing articles for various magazines. Her first book was published in England. The war and Bill's failing eyesight brought them back to the United States. They settled on a small farm near Peterborough, New Hampshire. Her most famous book Amos Fortune, Free Man, won her the prestigious Newbury Medal. Besides writing around fifty books, her interests reached out in many directions. Because of her husband's blindness, Elizabeth became quite active in the Association for the Blind. The gift of her land to the State is now enjoyed by many as Shieling Forest.
