By the first twenty years of the twentieth century, the memory of old-time New England was in danger. Professor Lindgren examines the work of the Preservation Movement, focusing on the conflict between tradition-bound Yankees on one side, and the joint foes of immigrants, radicals, and Colonial Revival movements on the other. He looks into the meaning of preserved artefacts and sites, and links their preservation to campaigns that were aimed at Americanizing immigrants and establishing cultural order.
