Summary
"This study chronicles and problematizes ten years of interpretation of a single period. It challenges public historians to alter their perception of what eighteenth-century interpretation can be. It proposes new methods of interpretation and understanding to make greater connections with the American public. It proposes a history that does not rest solely on names or dates to form meaning, but creates a sense of the effusive nature of the historical narrative for all that encounter it as its goal. However, as these changes occur, let us not lose sight of the docent from the Marblehead Historical Society, because without her diligent work and passion for American history, and that of others like her, there would be no foundation on which to build"-- Provided by publisher.
