Meet Mrs. Mary Rowlandson
Mary Rowlandson was a Puritan who was held in captivity by the Indians during King Philip's War in 1676. Her husband was the first minister of Lancaster, Massachusetts. During her eleven week captivity Mary Rowlandson traveled through many towns in Massachusetts, and even into New Hampshire and Vermont before she was returned to the English in Princeton.
Discussion and a question-answer time may follow this little-studied period of Early American history. This program is sponsored by the Princeton Historical Society through a grant from the Princeton Cultural Council which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
