Alert the Media

I observed this Patriots’ Day (observed) morning by getting up early to speak to The Bryant Park Project about John Adams and his latest miniseries. This is a National Public Radio show that seems to be the equivalent of Morning Edition for the young, hip crowd. I don’t think it yet has a broadcast home in Boston, but hey—young, hip people get all their news off the internet, anyway! So here’s a link to the Adams segment.

For folks who couldn’t make the Battle Road reenactment in Minute Man National Historical Park on Saturday, here are photo galleries from Scott and from Kathryn Ramsey. [ADDENDUM: And one from Ann Irish and two from Carlton SooHoo.]
