Presented by Larry Kidder. After the Civil War, the people of Hopewell (like people all over America) had to deal with a world on the verge of rapid changes that would ultimately replace agriculture as the primary economic activity. How people sought to benefit and adapt to new ways of life provide many examples of "true grit" in our community. Presented by Larry Kidder. Mr. Kidder is a retired history teacher and president of the Hopewell Valley Historical Society. He is the author of several books. His most recent book is Ten Crucial Days: Washington's Vision for Victory Unfolds.
