Master

The Masters are a fictional family in Rutherfurd's New York. In the first chapter, they arrive in Boston as Puritans from England, but a younger son, after a family dispute, moves first to Long Island and then to Manhattan, where the Masters intermarry with the Van Dycks. The novel traces this family's fortunes to the present day.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The first Armistice Day observances, which included a two minute silence, were held in London at Buckingham Palace on the eleventh day of November 1919, exactly a year after the last day of World War I. That same day, in America, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation commemorating the day as Armistice Day. In Britain, Canada and many other places, this date is now called Remembrance Day; in the US Veterans Day.
