Parson John Living History Inc. is dedicated to studying and presenting events that shaped the world during the European settlement of the American continent and the founding of the United States of America. This purpose is accomplished through a cultural study of the European settlement of the American colonies by examining period writings including letters, diaries, books, pamphlets, and legal documents in the period from 1600 to 1812 while specializing in the interaction of religion and society in the lives of the colonists. The education of the public is via first-person interpretation, character demonstrations, and presentations at living history events, reenactments, schools, libraries, and churches. These presentations are intended to give an accurate view of various aspects of 18th-century life and culture.
