« back to classes page
Two very small, very early American towns stand out from all others in the cultural impact they have exerted on American life: Williamsburg, Virginia and Concord, Massachusetts. Both founded in the 1630s, both centers of revolutionary life, both one tenth the size of a Philadelphia, Boston or New York, they would give birth to new forms of public and private life that would revolutionize America. This lecture will examine the special character of these two microcosms of Americanness, and seek the meaning of the cultural migration from Williamsburg to Walden.
