James Patrick Riley(Hour 2c) James Patrick Riley would appreciate our help in contacting WGBH-TV in Boston and NH Public Television and requesting that they run theCourage, NH mini-series.

Why would local TV stations not be interested in running a program about colonial history in our own backyard?  We certainly are.

Riley filled us in on the history of NH Governor John Wentworth, a man who was very distrustful of local officials and wanted to kick control to the central planners.  Was he NH’s first Democrat?

We discussed today’s battles for local control vs. “Fedcoats.”   Battles that aren’t much different from the ones we’ve read about in the history books.

And watched on Courage, NH.
