Royal octavo, red & tan cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, map illus. endpapers, xiii + 359 pp. Fine (As New) in a tape repaired dust jacket with sunning to spine and edges From dust jacket: Local history CAN be fun. Lew Knapp's new look at Stratford's history shows people as they were, with ideals and aspirations, frailties and flaws the same as ours. It is the story of the early planters in search of religious freedom, and of their bound indentured servants; of men in terror of witches, wolves, and Indians, who hang a witch, hunt the wolves, and tell the Indians to come explain why they are afraid of white men but, if they won't, “to compell them to come by violence”; of colonists who fought the French and then the British for liberty, and finally freed their slaves. It traces the evolution of our government -- through William Samuel Johnson, one of thirty-nine who signed the Constitution; David Plant and Pierrepont Edwards, instrumental in creating our state constitution; and Donald Sammis, who led the fight for council-manager town government...
