I recommend reading, The United States in 1800, by Henry Adams.Â It is amazing to read how difficult it was to move around in New England.Â This includes people and commerce.Â I was surprised to learn that the stage-coach was invented back there.Â I thought it was invented out west!

Thanks Bette! I did a quick search for that title and found that it is available online through the American Studies at the University of Virginia website. If you have a genealogy or history related book or movie that you’d like to recommend, you can send it to Juliana@Ancestry.com and I’ll post it here on the blog.
