Call in to speak with the host


JL Bell, the author of the blog Boston 1775, and host, Marian Pierre-Louis, will discuss New England in the Revolution.

In the first half hour we discuss the youth and "hooligans" of Boston in the 1760s who later became the Patriots fighting in the Revolutionary War of the 1770s.

In the second half hour we discuss the Vassall family of Cambridge, Massachusetts and compare and contrast their lives to that of their slaves, also with the same name, Vassall.

Join us for some truly fascinating stories from the Revolutionary War era.
