Puritans Going to Church in Massachusetts Bay Colony

George Henry Boughton (1834-1905) created this illustration of "Puritans Going to Church," in 1884.

The following year, Thomas Gold Appleton turned the illustration into an engraving. This print—which was published circa March 31, 1885—is now maintained at the Library of Congress. Its curators provide this summary:

Print showing a puritan husband and wife walking through snow on their way to church, he carrying a rifle, she a prayer book or bible.

The Library's curators also note that both the artist and the engraver signed the mezzotint:

Signed in pencil "G.H. Boughton" lower left, "Thomas G. Appleton" lower right.
