  • About the Edition

    Most readers know Salem only for the city"s notorious witch trials. But years later it became a very different city, one that produced America"s first millionaire (still one of history"s 75 wealthiest men) and boasted a maritime trade that made it the country"s richest city. Westward expansion and the industrial revolution would eventually erode Salem"s political importance, but it was a shocking murder and the scandal that followed which led at last to its fall from national prominence. This book is the tale of a little-known but remarkably rich era of American history, drawing in characters such as Nathaniel Hawthorne, John Quincy Adams, and Daniel Webster.
