It's weird. I finished The Mayflower (book) and was fascinated by how much of the action took place in places I can see from our beach! At one end, Mt. Hope, where they drew and quartered King Phillip. At our beach and across the way, Treaty rock. There were dozens of places and scenes in that book that I see and sail by.
It really brings history home. And, yeah, after they drew and quartered King Phillip, they planted his head outside the entrance to that socialist commune....left it there for decades. I think they even added to the collection.
