Rising Above

Yesterday’s Boston Globe Magazine had an article on ”Sixty-four websites on Boston life that you should know.” Under the category of “History,” Michael Prager wrote:

Boston has many of these sites, as it should, but one rises above the rest. Boston1775.blogspot.com provides frequent blasts from our Revolutionary past, propelled by the passions of author, writer, and non-profiteer J.L. Bell, 42, of Newton. He matches inexhaustible fodder with indefatigable constancy, posting almost daily since May 2006. His insights during last spring's HBO miniseries on John Adams transformed the viewing.
Thanks to Mr. Prager, and welcome to any and all new readers!
