New Hampshire History


In pre-Columbian times, what was to become present-day New Hampshire was inhabited by various Algonquian tribes.

The first Europeans reached the area at the beginning of the 17th century, and began to settle in 1623. By 1631, European settlements had been established at Dover, Durham and Stratham.

When the American Revolution began, New Hampshire was the first state to declare its independence. Only one battle was fought in the state; the raid on Fort William and Mary, which is widely regarded as the first battle of the Revolutionary War.

By the mid 19th century, the state was industrializing, and many textiles mills were established in the state. These new industries attracted many new immigrants from Quebec and Ireland.

In the 20th century, the textile industry has gone into decline, but the state has rebounded as a center of high technology and service industries. New Hampshire has also become known as the site of the New Hampshire Presidential primary, which is the first presidential election primary in the United States, and gives an early indication of the popularity of the candidates.

Product Description:
The resourcefulness of Granite Staters in their efforts to innovate and improvise is the reason for this incredible and intriguing cast of true stories about New Hampshire people living what they love and loving what they do.
Hidden in the cracks and crevices of the Granite State are the stories of pioneers who pursued their passions, creating legacies along the way. There is the tale of the mountain man who became an innkeeper; the “Bird Man” who took his passion to the White House; the gentleman who ascended the highest peak in the Northeast in a steam-powered locomobile; the story of one skier’s dramatic win at the 1939 “American Inferno” Mount Washington race; the Shaker Meetinghouse, built in just one day, in complete silence; and the gallant efforts to save the Old Man of the Mountain. Quincy Whitney’s compilation of stories makes for a colorful narrative of some of New Hampshire’s most notable newsmakers and remarkable historic events.

Product Description:
Stories of memorable people, places and events reveal the history of New Hampshire's Lakes Region and Pemigewasset Valley. Tectonic upheavals and volcanic forces make the mountains, and glaciers carve the valleys. People hunt caribou on the open tundra of 12,000 years ago and later paddle the rivers and lakes. They fill the shores with their villages, until disease and warfare sweep them away. New settlers enter the empty land to farm, and to use its water power. Settlers cut the forest and build sailboats, horseboats and steamboats. Artists and writers discover the scenery and tourists swarm to the lakesides, riversides, and mountains. Stagecoaches give way to railroads and the first fragile airplane, while factories make railroad cars, gloves, socks and towels. Sleek passenger steamboats compete to dominate Lake Winnipesaukee. Children eagerly gather in the country's first summer camps, while wealthy landowners build mansions, and the land is dotted with one-room schools, cross-roads villages and country stores. People live through hard winters and floods, hurricanes and wars. There are hard times for farmers, and later, for factory workers, but they adapt to change and create new livelihoods and lifestyles. Many historic illustrations make past times vivid, and modern photos reveal pieces of the past that are preserved in the present.

Product Description:
Excerpt from History of the Town of Hampton, New Hampshire, Vol. 1: From Its Settlement in 1638, to the Autumn of 1892

In the early stages of my study, I had an efficient co-laborer in my friend and cousin, Josiah Page, of Hampton, who devoted himself assiduously to the task of gathering information, which, by his notes, and from the treasures of his wonderfully retentive memory, he placed in my hands. A born genealogist, Mr. Page brought to this depart ment of the work his greatest zeal, while he collected also many facts' of historical importance. I have to regret that he died without seeing the work completed.

The names of John Wingate Thornton, Amos Tuck, Edmund B. Dearborn and others, who have passed away, recall much valuable help rendered by these men. To all who have given access to papers, searched records or otherwise aided me in my researches, I would render grateful acknowledgements.

Free reference is made, in these pages, to the works of Belknap, Winthrop and various town historians; to the Provincial and State papers, edited by Rev. Nathaniel Bouton, D.D. To Adjutant General Head's Report s to the New Hampshire Historical Society's Collections, the New England historic-genealogical Register and kindred works; while the records of town, church and county have been the main reliance for the history of' local affairs.

If I have succeeded in preparing a worthy memorial of my native town, in the years fast receding, I shall not have labored in vain.

Product Description:
New Hampshire was once a hotbed of abolitionist activity. But the state had its struggles with slavery, with Portsmouth serving as a slave-trade hub for New England. Abolitionists such as William Lloyd Garrison, Nathaniel Peabody Rogers and Stephen Symonds Foster helped create a statewide antislavery movement. Abolitionists and freed slaves assisted in transporting escapees to freedom via the Underground Railroad. Author Michelle Arnosky Sherburne uncovers the truth about slavery, the Underground Railroad and the abolitionist movement in New Hampshire.
