    Book details

The town of Canton is a celebration of New England history, from its early days when Paul Revere opened the nation's first copper rolling mill in 1801 to its beautiful nineteenth-century architecture and its economic growth through the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Here, in over 200 rare and striking photographs, the story of Canton unfolds, full of rich tradition and Yankee pride. Canton's reputation as the center of the nation's copper industry helped the town contribute to the young country's history. The first copper plates for the hull of the USS Constitution came from Canton, as did the copper work for the nation's first steam-powered warship. Many of the brass cannons used during the Civil War were also made in this Massachusetts town. Canton will immerse the reader in days gone by, taking a nostalgic look at a time thought by many to be the best. Images of schools, churches, families, police, and firefighters compose a picture of another era, where one can see Canton at work, play, and war.
