Margaret Fuller's New England

FullersFootstepsMargaret Fuller was an author, editor, journalist, educator, and women's rights advocate. Today, we consider her one of the guiding lights of the first wave of feminism in America.

She was the first editor of the Transcendentalist newspaper The Dial and the author of the landmark Woman in the Nineteenth Century. She was the first woman journalist and the first literary editor for a major American newspaper (New-York Tribune), the first woman foreign correspondent, and the first to serve in that capacity during wartime (Italian Revolution). Before Margaret Fuller died tragically in a shipwreck at the age of 40, she planned to lead a truly intercontinental life, contributing her many gifts to reform movements and revolutions in America and Europe.

This 24-page, saddle wire, illustrated self-guided trail guide documents places throughout New England where Margaret Fuller lived, worked, and visited including sites in Concord, Cambridge, and Boston, Massachusetts, and points west, north, and south of the city. There are also sites in Rhode Island and New Hampshire. The trail was written and designed by Bonnie Hurd Smith for the Margaret Fuller Bicentennial in 2010 from biographies by Joan von Mehren and Charles Capper. It features dozens of historical photographs and quotes from Fuller's work. Part of the proceeds from sales return to the Bicentennial committee for future projects.
