Description
The Work of Our Hands chronicles the history of the town of Mount Pleasant from its earliest settlements through the end of the 19th century.

Mount Pleasant stands out as having experienced most of the major social, economic, military and political events in our nation’s early history. Dr. Jaeger skilfully weaves the story of 19th century Mount Pleasant into the fabric of this larger history, at the same time describing how the small pioneer settlement, carved out of the vast Six Nations territory by Joseph Brant, was transformed into an aristocratic village that “charms with its loveliness” centuries later...
