Welcome summer! If you love history, don't miss "The Battle of Menotomy," which explores the lessons to be learned from this largest, longest, and bloodiest engagement of April 19, 1775. Meet "the sons of Death" and discover the roles they played on that fateful day of April 19, 1775, in "Hell Followed With Them." After the Boston Tea Party, Britain saw Massachusetts as a spoiled child. In response, Massachusetts formed its own Provincial Congress, and no - they weren't sorry. Read "Massachusetts' Provincial Congress: Britain's Guiltless Children" for the outcome of that historic action. Did you know that you can visit almost a dozen historic sites simply by taking "A Walk Along Concord's American Mile," or that Ralph Waldo Emerson went camping ("Waldo in the Woods: Emerson and The Philosopher's Camp")? Now that you're outside, why not dine al fresco in Concord, welcome butterflies to your garden, take a swim in Walden Pond, or ride a bike? This issue explores all of those classic summertime activities.
