Today, I was reminded that homeschool moms do not know everything. In our unit on Lentil, we're learning out Veteran's Day, Memorial Day, and the American flag. Since our flag has 13 stripes to represent the 13 colonies, I decided to print off a map of the 13 colonies. I was shocked when I found out that Maine was not Maine, but part of Massachusetts.
I called up Drew on the phone and asked, "Is it true that Maine was part of Massachusetts?"
To which he replied, "Yes."
"When did it become its own state? And why?"
"I don't know, Sarah."
So, I'm asking you. What books would be good to read (for me) about the history of Massachusetts? Or Maine? What are you thankful for today?
