This week’s Concord history quiz from the Concord Historical Society: Concord’s most famous visitor most likely was Lafayette, who visited the city 200 years ago this week. Perhaps the second biggest celebrity was the inpidual pictured here on the old balcony of the Eagle Hotel. Who was he?
The story of this celebrity is one of the subjects of “Crosscurrents of Change: The History of Concord in the Twentieth Century,” which is due out in the fall. Look for the answer to today’s quiz at our website, concordhistoricalsociety.org, or see the answer in next week’s Insider.
