About the Productions:

Isaiah Thomas - Patriot Printer
Isaiah Thomas (1749-1831)
was instrumental in starting the American Revolution and as the foremost publisher in the Early Republic, created a uniquely American literature and culture. He founded the American Antiquarian Society in 1812. Produced by the American Antiquarian Society.

Yours for Humanity - Abby
Abby Kelley Foster (1811-1887)
was a leading nineteenth-century abolitionist and women's rights activist. Abby dedicated her life to social justice, working relentlessly to end both race and gender prejudice. At a time when society demanded that women be silent, submissive and obedient, Abby was none of these. Sponsored the Worcester Women's History Project.

Beating the Demon
John B. Gough (1817-1886)
, temperance reformer, was known in the nineteenth century as the "Apostle of Cold Water." Gough was a recovering alcoholic whose dramatic lectures about his own fight for sobriety made him an international celebrity. Produced by Damora Productions and sponsored the Hillside Restoration Project.
