On December 17, 1807, a baby boy was born to Quaker farmers in Massachusetts. His early life did not mirror those of some of the nation’s great writers. He did not have the opportunity for years of formal schooling, but that did not hamper his love of learning. At nineteen he would see his first poem published. During his life he would become one of the most respected and well-known authors of the time. Today let’s get to know John Greenleaf Whittier with a timeline worksheet quiz and a notebooking page.
