Follow Friday - Boston 1775

One of my daily pleasures is reading the recent posts of over 600 genealogy and history blogs, and one I really look forward to is the Boston 1775 blog authored by J.L. Bell.

The description on the blog page says "History, analysis, and unabashed gossip about the start of the American Revolution in Massachusetts."

J.L. writes one blog post each day, often in a series format, and often according to the calendar (i.e., what happened on this date back in 1775 or some other year). I've learned so much about Revolutionary War history by reading his posts each day for the past four years. The current series about Isaac Bissell grew out of posts about the Lexington Alarm on 19 April 1775, and discusses one of those little-known actors in history with 15 minutes of fame. J.L. also blogs occasionally about his Twitter interesting collection of links. Brave man!

Check out the Resources, Other Blogs and Favorite Sites on his left sidebar, and the topics on the right sidebar. This is a truly wonderful collection of articles.
