Although they might be shaking hands with the king of Hawaii or waving the banners of women's suffrage in front of the White House, the citizens of Methuen never forgot their home. Even at the end of Leverett Bradley Jr.'s four years of Civil War service, he was still sending his Methuen family news (and urgent requests for butter) at the same constant rate. Dan Gagnon introduces the men and women who made this Massachusetts town so memorable. Sit beside them in an eighth-grade class taught by famous poet Robert Frost, or walk among them as they march out to risk their lives in Korea, France or against the redcoats just down the road.
