The Amoskeag Manufacturing Company: A History of Enterprise on the Merrimack River

Amoskeag history - book cover imageBy Aurore Eaton

This new book tells the story of the powerful corporation that created the vast mill yard that stretches for over a mile along the banks of the Merrimack River in Manchester. The company's products included the famous Amoskeag ginghams, the denim used to make the first Levis blue jeans, steam locomotives, steam fire engines, and rifle-muskets for the Union Army during the Civil War. The book tells how the Amoskeag developed Manchester as a planned city, and highlights its labor history, including the influx of immigrant workers, the controversial reality of child labor, and the devastating effect of strikes. Published in 2015.
