Summary
Puleo, a former newspaper reporter and contributor to American History magazine who has written other books on Boston, recounts the history of the city from 1850 to 1900, a period when it was transformed into an influential and prominent metropolis. He traces such events as the abolitionist movement of the 1850s, the Back Bay project, Irish immigration and annexation of other cities, contributions to the Union cause during the Civil War, the Great Fire of 1872 and subsequent rebuilding of downtown, Alexander Graham Bell's first telephone transmission in 1876, and the opening of America's first subway station there in 1897.
