Rebecca Fraser, Author Lecture

 

Marshfield’s Historic Triangle proudly presents:

Rebecca Fraser, Author 

The Mayflower; The Families, the Voyage and the Founding of America

Thursday, November 9, 2017, 7pm 

The Daniel Webster Estate

238 Webster St.

 

 

Rebecca Fraser  sheds new light about the Mayflower and on a family caught up in all the perils of crossing the ocean and settling in the wilderness.

But the story did not end there. All settlers had to become linguists, traders, and explorers, and yet not forget their roots and customs from the old country. With the aid of exciting contemporary documents, Mrs.  Fraser brings the Winslow  to life, a family made less ordinary by their responses to the challenges of the New World.

The very special relationship between Edward Winslow and Massassoit chief of the Wampanoags is commemorated in the first Thanksgiving. But fifty years later Edward’s son Josiah was commander in chief of the New England militias against Massassoit’s son in King Philip’s War.

Written with the pace of an epic, this is a story that is both national but intimate and human, chronicling as the Winslows made the painful decisions that ensured their survival in America.

 

REBECCA FRASER, a long-time Winslow Association Member, has worked as a researcher, an editor, and a journalist, and has written for many publications, including Tatler, Vogue, The Times, and The Spectator. She is the author of The Brontës and The Story of Britainand lives in England.

 

Please note: This an Historic Triangle program and will take place at The Daniel Webster Estate.

Fundraise the Roof!

For generations, the 1699 Isaac Winslow House in Marshfield has been more than just a house.  It has sheltered families through some of the most pivotal times in New England’s early history. The Winslow House has continued through the centuries to provide a perfect place for families to come together to share old stories and begin new ones, to create lasting memories and kindle passion for our nation’s origin stories. So many stories, all under one roof; a roof that now needs your help.  Please consider making a donation towards our  goal for preservation and repairs to the highest point of the Winslow House.
