Our Yankee forefathers left an undeniable mark, not just in our area, but throughout the entire country because of their oftentimes odd behavior. They hunted witches, fought empires, clashed with or befriended natives, communed with spirits, started rebellions, brutally murdered each other, searched for treasure, challenged Satan himself, and literally changed the course of an entire country and culture. Wow, Yankees were busy. As we begin to explore the actions and lives of these old school New Englanders, it will become clear, though they came from varied backgrounds, achieved or failed at achieving various honors, were famous, infamous, or both, it can be agreed that they were all Wicked Yankee. I know that was cheesy, but let’s roll with it.
