Discover the true story behind America’s first chocolate company, formed in pre-Revolutionary New England. In 1765, the story goes, Dr. James Baker of Dorchester, Massachusetts, stumbled upon a penniless Irish immigrant named John Hannon, who was crying on the banks of the mighty Neponset River. Hannon possessed the rare skills required to create chocolate—a delicacy exclusive to Europe—but had no way of putting this knowledge to use.
Anthony Mitchell Sammarco is a noted historian and author of over sixty books on the history and development of Boston.
