Happy Evacuation Day!

Greetings and Happy Evacuation Day from Mark in Boston. There is no Paddy’s Day in Boston but one of the few things early on that united the new Irish and the old establishment Yankees was a celebration of the day the British forces abandoned Boston Harbour. More here from Michael Ring. There’s also the Britain and Ireland interview with Globe journalist, Kevin Cullen!
