Volume I: Ties That Bind, 1900-1945

This popular history of 20th century Plymouth up to World War II explores the toils, triumphs, joys, and sorrows of people who lived through a period of extreme change and catastrophic world events. An oversized paperback book of 180 pages with over 150 photographs, maps, illustrations, bibliography, index, 35 original chapters and 8 chapters that are reprinted in this edition. This is the story of how Plymouth attracted and assimilated a post-Yankee wave of Italian, Portuguese, German and French immigrants through the largest rope manufacturing company in the world, transformed its local economy, became a tourist destination, bedroom community and solidified its position as America’s hometown. During the 20th century, Plymouth grew from a mill town of 9,500 residents to a sprawling community of more than 50,000. This is a story told by the people who lived it.

Plymouth, Massachusetts

This is the first major work that locates and documents conditions of more that 2,000 gravestones in Plymouth’s oldest cemetery, dating from 1657. Previously published works by Bradford Kingman (1892) and Benjamin Drew (1894) provide epitaphs for graves that had them. The only monuments and gravestones of Mayflower passengers are those of Gov. William Bradford and John Howland. This book is the most accurate, up-to-date information available for genealogists (family researchers), libraries, descendants of the 17th century Pilgrims and students of gravestone studies.
