The Beechers Through the Nineteenth Century: A Radio Playby Sasha Newborn
As I came to know
Why is it that the members of a few families sprouted so many useful and famous careers, such as the Jameses, the Adamses, the Holmeses. And the Beechers. Is it a peculiar gene? Or perhaps the family environment is somehow conducive to genius? Out of eleven (!) children, ten of the Beechers secured a national reputation in one form or another.
As I came to know them by their personal statements, I realized that their history was our United States history, not the whole of it, but a major portion of the tides of sentiment and eras of a nation abuilding.
This script was produced to honor the Beechers and what they had done that is so little known today. Much of the Nineteenth Century, certainly the era before the War Between the States or the War of Secession (now known as the Civil War, which it was not), is hidden history, yet these events, thse people, laid the foundations for what our culture has become.
