Good book,
I knew McNamara in his last years.

Can you imagine how that area appeared in the mid 17th century? Th local Indians, Siwanoys were violent, they had killed Ann Hutchinson and attacked the Throggmorton Settlement.

at todays's Westchester Square, originally settled by Puritans from Connecticut, Puritans were never completely happy until they could accuse someone man or woman of being a witch. At the present location of Westchester Square in 1650 imagine a small clearing with rude huts with a crude fence close by a farming area, the water then was close by and boats and even some ships could come in close. In the direction of ParkCheser you saw a wall of thick tall trees a barrier demonstrating this was an endpoint of western civilization, beyond that was the wild natural land as was most of North America.
