America~MASSACHUSETTS~by rldubour


MASSACHUSETTS

The state motto is: “By the sword we
Seek peace, but peace only under liberty!”
Nicknamed “The Bay State” or “Massachusetts
Bay”, the site of the Puritan’s colony.

Most likely the origin of the state name
Came from the Algonquin village.
In honor of their leader, Chief Massassoit.
For his friendship and peace he would encourage.

The state insect is the ladybug
The state bird is the chickadee.
The flower is the mayflower
And the American elm is the tree.

The residents are called “Bay Staters
The state fruit is the cranberry.
The gem is called the rhodonite
And in Plymouth is Ocean Spray cannery.

In sixteen-twenty-one in Plymouth
The Puritans are settling in their ways.
As they put aside a day of thanks
Will be known forever as “Thanksgiving Day!”

At the Peabody Essex Museum
Preserved and still stored to view.
Five-hundred and fifty-two documents
To the Salem Witch Trials of 1692.

The first college in America
In 1636 is Harvard University.
And the Mather school in 1639
America’s first public school was free.

Joe Naismith invented basketball
In Springfield, the year was 1891.
The first U.S. Postal Zip Code was
Issued to Agawam and is 01101

 

Norfolk Countyis the birthplace

To four United States Presidents.

From Provincetown to Stockbridge

A state to visit is well spent.

 

Mann, Thoreau, Bush and John QuincyAdams

It is time for some famous names again.

Bernstein, Geisel, Kennedy and Samuel Adams

Dickinson, Davis, Revere and Ben Franklin.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Statehood February 6, 1788 the 6th state.

Capital isBoston

 

AUTHOR NOTES:
Boston common was the first public park in America in 1634.
In Holyoke, William G Morgan created a new game called Mintonetee in 1895.
The name was changed to Volleyball when played in Springfield nearby.
Norfolk County is the birthplace of Four United States Presidents as you will see.
John Adams, John Quincy Adams, George Walker Bush and John Fitzgerald Kennedy!
There is a house in Rockport built entirely out of newspaper.

  1. Maybe someday CASWELL will also be famous (NOT!!!!)…more likely DuBour! I would have preferred a mention of EDAVILLE, but no-one is perfect…and I heard it still for sale, although its website still talks about an operating season (wishful thinking?). I, in fact, was born in Massachusetts…my Dad was a Methodist pastor at the time, serving in the Agawam/Feeding Hills area, tho we moved out to New York State when I was 2 1/2, so Dad could take a job as a Protestant Chaplain at what was then Binghamton State Hospital. But, I’m BACK!
