Episode Description:

For most New Englanders, you should really know the answer to this question, for William Blackstone was the first white settler on Shawmut Peninsula, or what we know as the Boston Common. Yet few people have even heard of him, maybe the Pilgrims had better press agents. Story goes that he was so fed up with the words and actions of the Puritans, that he left Boston and rode a bull to what is, today, Cumberland, Rhode Island. As National Park Interpretive Rangers, how do you tell a story about a man who no one knows what he looked like, few of his words are left for us to read, yet had a great impact on our views on religion and freedom. So join us as Along the Blackstone’s Episode #31 uncovers just who William Blackstone was and why that matters.
