Early American Life article features a love story in letters

My article in the December, 2021 issue of Early American Life uses the 1829 and 1830 love letters of two New Englanders to offer an intimate peek into courtship, romance, and marriage preparations at the height of New England Village culture. Excerpts of the letters are interspersed with interpretation and context, and illuminated with the painted wedding portraits of the pair and images of their home.
