Boston in 1775 - great blog!

Are you a New England, Revolutionary War history buff like me? If so, here is your Sunday treat!

There is a blog named Boston 1775, written by J.L. Bell, with some fascinating articles and posts. He describes the blog as

"History, analysis, and unabashed gossip about the start of the American Revolution in Massachusetts."

I especially liked the one about Dr. Thomas Young and the one about Benjamin Franklin and his use of new English words.

Very cool! I love it! I will add it to my blogroll soon even though it is not exactly genealogy.

Wow, Randy, thanks for sharing that site. The first thing I did was send it to my colleagues who teach history. Like you, I'm interested in history and found this blog very intriguing.
