Worcester, Massachusetts was the home of a number of my ancestors in the early 1700s to early 1800s, and I wanted to read this book. Kenneth J. Moynihan, the author, has done a wonderful job. I was especially pleased to read over several pages about one of my grandfathers, Daniel Baird, who was arrested and charged with treason during the Shays Rebellion. He was a tavern keeper, a committeeman, and served in the Revolutionary War. From this remove in time, I see him as a man who had passionate beliefs. Fortunately for me, he was pardoned by the government.

The illustrations and maps were dark, blurry, and undiscernable. However, there was good recognition showed to the veterans of worcester, although I wish there was better biographical descriptions concerning the specifics of military service rendered by those men.

This book is quite interesting to anyone living in the city of Worcester MA. Gives new meaning to Chandler St., Rice Square, Salisbury St., and so forth.

This history of Worcester is a readable modern update of the city's history up to its establishment as a city in 1848.I recommend it highly.
