A New England Primer: The Literature, History and Theology of Boston and Concord

June 15-21, 2015
From Colonial Times until the American Civil War, Boston and Concord were the epicenters of American history, literature, and theology. Join our small group of travelers as we rediscover the importance of these two cities—one large, one small—and their connections to the Puritan founders, the Revolutionary War, and the Transcendentalists. Some of the planned activities include: walking the Freedom Trail, exploring Harvard Square and Cambridge, enjoying an exclusive lecture by prize-winning historian Dr. Robert Gross, and visiting various literary sites of the “American Renaissance.” We have also set aside plenty of time for you to explore Boston and Concord on your own, enjoy the cuisine, and simply relax in these historic locales.
