Excerpt from A History of the Town of ShrewsburyTo collect and embody the principal interesting events, with the dates of their occurrence, that have transpired in a town in the course of a whole century, and such other matter as will be useful to be known, is a task, that none are aware of, but those who have undertaken it. A wish to aid the praiseworthy purpose, undertaken by two or three gentlemen, to furnish for the Press a history of each of the towns in the County of Worcester, has induced me to furnish that of Shrewsbury.There are but few, if any, who would not like to know what has been in their native town - changes are taking place every year, and many interesting circumstances and important transactions are, in a few years after they happen, indistinctly remembered, and in a few more, wholly forgotton.The young learn from the aged many interesting things that belonged to times long gone by - these cannot be correctly transmitted, without being made matter of record. Many of the present day, and after a lapse of a few more years, all then on the stage, will find accounts of some things herein, of which, but for a work like this, they would have been as unknowing, as they themselves were once unknown.This work was therefore undertaken, with a belief, that it would not only be perused with interest at the present day, and prove instructive to the rising generation, but serve as a beginning of what, at some future day, will be an extended and more interesting history of the town - a foundation, on which, it is hoped, some one will hereafter, in due time, and with the addition of new materials, erect a superstructure, in which the reader will he entertained with things old and new.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
