PHEBE BLISS EMERSON Jan Turnquist as Phebe Emerson

Long before penning these lines, little Ralph Waldo Emerson delighted in his grandmother's first-hand accounts of the fight at Concord's North Bridge on April 19, 1775. Phebe Emerson brings a fresh perspective about what is was really like on that fateful day that began the American Revolution. Mrs. Emerson was the wife of Concord's minister and their home overlooks the Old North Bridge. Phebe discusses how the townspeople felt about the Revolution, and reviews events leading up to it. She also gives audience members a sense of daily life, learning, and work in colonial America.

Living history performances allow you and your audience to travel back in time for a fascinating opportunity to meet "Phebe Bliss Emerson."
