"this period is one during which great changes took place…the story of these changes parallels the advance of the country as a whole, and in this volume a thread of national events has been woven as a backdrop against which to paint the local scene." Bringing the history of the town to 1950, this book is dedicated to the Cohasset men killed in World War II.
