The Genesis of the New England Churches
Harper, 1874 - 485 pages
Leonard Bacon (February 19, 1802 - December 24, 1881) was an American Congregational preacher and writer. He held the pulpit of the First Church New Haven and was later professor of church history and polity at Yale College. From 1825 until his death he was pastor of the First Church (Congregational) in New Haven, Connecticut, occupying a pulpit which was one of the most conspicuous in New England. He was early attracted to the study of the ecclesiastical history of New England and was frequently called upon to deliver commemorative addresses, some of which were published in book and pamphlet form. The most important of his historical works is his Genesis of the New England Churches (1874).
