Hannah and the Hatchet Gang: Rockport’s Revolt Against Rum, by Eleanor C. Parsons




Hannah Jumper was no myth, as author Eleanor Parsons and all of Rockport know. She was very much a real person, one of strong convictions who set out at age 75 to lead nearly 200 normally prudent housewives in a daring scheme. On a scorching July day, more than a century ago, they staged their wild five-hour rampage to stamp out “demon rum” forever in the Cape Ann fishing village of Rockport, Mass.
