“The Revolution was in the hearts and minds of the people.”
– John Adams to Hezekiah Niles 13 February 1818
The commemoration of the 250th Anniversary of the American Revolution can not succeed without the aid and support of the people of Massachusetts. Just as we did 250 years ago, the people must band together to provide the means necessary to commemorate the actions of our nation’s founders, to help preserve the witness structures, documents and material culture from that important time, and to provide resources for the education of future generations on the importance of the cause of American independence.
