A Memorial Day tribute


Spotted Sunday in Arlington Center. Wow.

  1. Good stuff. Arlington is often overlooked with respect to the events of April 19th and the start of the Revolutionary War. Thank you.

    Another Menotomy heroic favorite is Mother Batherick — I don’t know whether she has a plaque, but Arlington at one point put on, as part of its Patriot’s Day celebration, a reenactment of her rounding up of British soldiers.

  2. But for a few days, Mr. Whittemore would have left the ephemeral creative days of April for the Bull of starting a war in May. Clever though, contributing to his 401K for another 18 years; starting Whittemore’s Hardware, Main street, Melrose! Great stuff!
