9780762769728: It Happened in New Hampshire: Remarkable Events That Shaped History (It Happened In Series)

It Happened in New Hampshire recounts twenty to thirty episodes from the history of the Granite State, including memorable events such as A Presidental Black Eye, 1789 and New Hampshire Picks a President, 1952, but also featuring lesser-known tales. From its earliest settlements at Odiorne Point, Dover, and Portsmouth, New Hampshire was different from the other colonies, and its history holds many surprises and a number of events that were significant to the founding and growth of the United States.

From the Back Cover:

From the tragic tale of young Lizzie Bourne's death on Mount Washington to the unsuccessful one hundred-year effort to save the Old Man of the Mountain, It Happened in New Hampshire takes readers on a behind-the-scenes tour of some of the fascinating characters and episodes that mark the Granite State's eventful past. Here you'll read about the bizarre demise of the Willey family in a Crawford Notch avalanche and Abijah Larned's bungled bank robbery in Charlestown. You'll learn of the mysterious death of Dr. William Dean in Jaffrey and the friendship between World War II prisoners of war and the villagers of Stark. And you'll find out about the daring sea rescue of submariners aboard the Squalus, which sank off the Isles of Shoals.
In an easy-to-read style that is entertaining and informative, Stillman Rogers recounts thirty-one of the most captivating moments from New Hampshire's history.
