simple stage

was to come up. The play garnered both critical and public acclaim. With Jouvet as Sir Andrew Aguecheek, Suzanne Bing as Viola, Blanche Albane as Olivia, and Romain Bouquet as Sir Toby Belch, in a startling simple stage setting, the play called upon the audience's imagination in a way that had not been seen on a Paris stage since Paul Fort, an earlier reformer who had worked in the theatre in the 1890s. Enthusiastic crowds finally queued up to see this rendition of "real Shakespeare" (Kurtz, p. 31), Kurtz, Maurice: ''Jacques Copeau: Biography of a theatre'', Carbondale: Southern Illinois University Press, 1999. ISBN 0-8093-2257-9. but the run closed as scheduled for the troupe was off to Alsace on tour.

Philippine-American War The great problem facing the United States at the close of the Spanish-American War was the Philippine-American War. To aid in suppressing this rebellion, the ''Helena'' sailed from Boston on 3 November 1898, bound for duty on the Asiatic Squadron, via the Suez Canal, arriving at the Philippines on 10 February 1899. On 21 May, she was present at the evacuation of Jolo by the Spanish, and the landing of the American troops to replace them. During June, she stood by with other vessels in Manila Bay to support the Army (United States Army) during its offensive south of Manila into the Cavite Province. One of her landing parties brought troops ashore in an assault that carried the strong defenses along the Zapote River (Battle of Zapote Bridge) on 13 June. On 7 November, the ''Helena'' bombarded San Fabian in Lingayen Gulf, and covered the landing of 2,500 troops there, on the same beaches that would again be stormed by US troops 45 years later.

-life , and by the mid-1780s had established his reputation. At about this time, however, Charles turned over his own miniature portrait practice to him, and throughout the 1790s and early 19th century Peale devoted himself to miniature painting. Much of this work was watercolor on ivory. In 1795 Peale exhibited a still life of fruit along with nine miniatures and his family portrait at the Columbianum, a short-lived art academy in Philadelphia. Around 1810, as Peale's eyesight began to weaken, he gave up painting miniatures to turn to large portraits and still-life subjects that were greatly admired and widely exhibited in Philadelphia, Boston, and Baltimore.

Prior to English colonization (British colonization of the Americas) of the area, it was inhabited by a variety of mainly Algonquian-speaking (Algonquian language) indigenous tribes. The first permanent English settlement was established in 1620 with the founding of Plymouth Colony by the Pilgrims (Pilgrim (Plymouth Colony)) who sailed on the ''Mayflower''. A second, shorter-lasting colony, was established near Plymouth in 1622 at Wessagusset (Wessagusset Colony), now Weymouth (Weymouth, Massachusetts). A large Puritan migration (Great Migration (Puritan)) begun in 1630 established the Massachusetts Bay Colony and Boston, and spawned the settlement of other New England colonies. Friction with the natives grew with the population, erupting in the Pequot War of the mid-1630s and King Philip's War in the 1670s. The colonies were religiously conservative, and Massachusetts Bay authorities in particular repeatedly deported, cast out, and even executed people with views that did not accord with their narrow Puritan views. The Massachusetts Bay Colony frequently clashed with political opponents in England, including several kings, over its religious intolerance and the status of its charter. Businessmen established wide-ranging trade links, sending ships to the West Indies and Europe, and sometimes shipping goods in violation of the Navigation Acts. These political and trade issues led to the revocation of the Massachusetts charter in 1684. The Big Dig In 1987, the state received federal funding for the Central Artery Tunnel Project. Known as "the Big Dig (Big Dig (Boston, Massachusetts))", it was at the time the biggest federal highway project ever approved. Grunwald, Michael. ''Dig the Big Dig'' '' The Washington Post ''.
