This book examines the work of the Preservation Movement, focusing on the complex battle that pitched tradition-bound Yankees not only against immigrants and radicals but against the "fakery" of machined Colonial Revival forms. It looks into the meaning of preserved artefacts and sites, and links their preservation to campaigns that were aimed at Americanizing immigrants and establishing cultural order. Through its particular focus, this book explores many of the driving forces that shaped New England during the Progressive Era.
