(Hour 3b) We were joined by Aurore Eaton for The History Lady segment. She joined us to talk about The Amoskeag Manufacturing Company: A History of Enterprise on the Merrimack River, which is the book that she wrote. We took a call from our loyal listener Harriet Cady, who gave us a piece of history and won a copy of the book. Aurore told us about Manchester during the Civil War era. She answered Rich’s inquiry about a potential labor shortage and discussed the acquisition of new workers. She also gave us a lesson about what the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company was. Tune in for all of the details.
