5) Thoreau leaves the woods
On this day in 1847, Henry David Thoreau leaves the woods and moves in with the Emersons in Concord. Thoreau is most known for his series of essays called Walden (or Life in the Woods), which he wrote while living in a shack in the woods for two years. In addition to Walden, Thoreau wrote several transcendentalist essays, as well as Civil Disobedience, a piece based on his time in jail for refusing to pay taxes. Thoreau died in 1862.
