Hit and Run History

"Snackable history." The past isn’t dead -- it’s all around us, found in regular, everyday places. You just need to know where to look. With a crew gathered from coastal towns in New England, we take history out of the library and down to the street-level. We check out the players, the places they lived, and hear from people who know them best. We get dirty. We make mistakes. And we have fun. We’re practicing history without a license – Hit and Run.
