WHAT AN AMAZING DAY!!!!
My parade costume was inspired by Henry Longfellow's poem, called "Paul Revere's Ride," which includes the famous line, "One, if by land, and two, if by sea." The phrase refers to how Revere would warn his minutemen about how the British were advancing during the American Revolutionary War.
My friends and family from Massachusetts cheered loud and proud for my 50 sisters and me. My brother, Jonny, was my chaperone. We had so much fun!

Thanks to Miss Massachusetts 2002, Melanie Hannack, for giving me this fabulous costume... which was spiced up by the incredible Kim Macomber. Kim also designed these INSANE shoes!!!! AMAZING!!! Special thanks to Jenn Lima for designing the bottoms of the shoe! They are perfect!!!!!!! #MissMassachusetts #MissAmerica #AmericanHistory #MassachusettsHistory #showmeyourshoes

This cloak was worn by Lucretia Mott around 1840. She was a Quaker minister as well as an educator, abolitionist, and pioneer of women's rights. She led efforts to avoid the use of goods produced through the labor of enslaved people and organized the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention with suffragist Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
Learn more about Lucretia Coffin Mott and religion in early America tomorrow during our Facebook Live tour of "Religion in Early American" with Curator Peter Manseau. Find it over at facebook.com/americanhistory

Did you know Frederick Douglass once lived in Massachusetts, first in New Bedford and later in Lynn, and his sons served in the 54th Massachusetts regiment during the Civil War? #frederickdouglass #blackhistorymonth #massachusettshistory

Here's a picture of a rock locked in a cage. But, it's not just any (possibly random) rock. It's Plymouth Rock! I don't remember it being this small in history books. In fact there's a ton of historical paintings showing it to be this huge boulder. Maybe over time it has eroded. Cool to see history but also, very underwhelming. #plymouth #plymouthrock #massachusettshistory

Part 1: We were visiting the historical homestead of Propagandhi soundfreak Mark Eugene Chaplin's great, great, great , great, great, great, great Grandfather in Massivtushits and when the guy who currently lives in the house came out to see why 7 weiners were lurking around; we started chatting and we realized that the place was coincidentally now the base of Deathwish records! The story gets really exciting in part 2. #deathwishrecords #markchaplin #massachusettshistory

Mayflower author and historian Caleb Johnson shared this image of Mayflower Pilgrim Richard More's grave (center) at Burying Point/Charter Street Cemetery in Salem, MA, with the witchcraft memorial in the back. His wives Christiana Hunter More (left) and Jane (Crumpton) More (Right).
He is the only Mayflower passenger to have his gravestone still where it was originally placed sometime in the mid-1690s.

On This Day in History September 8, 1636: The oldest institution of higher education in the United States is established by a vote of the Great and General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Initially named “New College,” the name would change to Harvard College and later Harvard University in honor of the first benefactor of the school John Harvard. Upon his death in 1638, Harvard left his library and half his estate to the institution.

Boot Cotton Mills in downtown Lowell, Massachusetts.

Why do I love historical structures so much? Because these architectural antiques allow me to make an intimate connection with the past. I'll never be able to experience what life was like in Lowell's Boot Cotton Mills during the 1830s; meet the workers that once toiled on the factory floors; or hear the sounds of all the machinery, clanking in unison like some sort of symphony of industry. But being able to see these massive structures, walk around the grounds or down their halls, & run my fingers through the contours of the cracks in the bricks - experiences like these instill an understanding of our past.

The Harriet Beecher Stowe gravesite located in the Phillips Academy Cemetery.

Harriet Beecher Stowe was a social activist & author best known for her anti-slavery novel "Uncle Tom's Cabin," which helped galvanize the abolition movement in both the U.S. & Great Britain. Upon its release, the book became a global sensation, having reached a best-seller status in several countries. Since then, it's been translated into more than 60 languages.

Harriet lived in Andover with her husband for roughly 12 years, while he was a professor of theology at the Andover Theological Seminary (formerly located on the Phillips Academy campus), becoming quite influential in the community.
