During the early-to-mid- 19th centuries, violent rioting occurred between Protestant "Nativists" and recently arrived Irish Catholic immigrants.

. Broadway The musical had a tryout in Boston, before opening on Broadway (Broadway theatre) at the Alvin Theatre on November 21, 1934. It ran for 420 performances, becoming the fourth longest-running musical of the 1930s, despite the impact of the Great Depression on Broadway patrons' disposable income. Directed by Howard Lindsay with choreography by Robert Alton and sets by Donald Oenslager, it starred Ethel Merman as Reno Sweeney, William Gaxton as Billy Crocker and Victor Moore as Moonface Martin. basis The stories of Dr. Seuss productions 2000 Boston tryout 2000 Broadway (Broadway theatre) 2002 1st US Tour 2003 2nd US Tour 2007 Off Broadway In 1932, he and three other partners were awarded an NFL franchise (Sports franchising) for Boston. This team became known as the Boston Braves, as they played on the same field as baseball's Boston Braves (Atlanta Braves). Marshall's partners left the team after one season, leaving him in control. In 1933 he moved the team from Braves Field to Fenway Park, changing the team nickname to the Redskins. In 1937 (1937 Washington Redskins season) he moved the team to Washington. He was romantically tied to silent screen actress Louise Brooks throughout the 1920s and 1930s, and she gave him the nickname "Wet Wash" due to his owning of the laundry chain. He was married to film actress-author Corinne Griffith from 1936 to 1958. In early 1775, Boston's Committee of Correspondence sent John Brown (John Brown of Pittsfield) into Quebec to gather intelligence, gauge sentiment, and agitate for rebellion in that province. He found mixed sentiment among English-speaking inhabitants, some of whom were concerned that the Congress' adoption of an export boycott would essentially give the lucrative fur trade to French-speakers. The bulk of the French-speaking population was at best neutral with respect to British rule; some were happy with it, but more might be convinced to assist the Americans in their aims. Brown also noted the relatively weak military presence in the province.

At the time of Healy's death, the Stooges (consisting of Moe, Larry, and Curly) were at Grand Central Terminal in New York City preparing to leave for a personal appearance in Boston. Before their departure, Howard called Rube Jackter, head of Columbia Pictures' sales department, to confirm their benefit performance at Boston's Children's Hospital. During the conversation, Jackter told Howard that the night editor of ''The New York Times'' wanted to talk to him. Howard phoned ''The Times''. The editor, without even a greeting, queried curtly, "Is this Moe?" Howard said it was. The editor then asked, "Would you like to make a statement on the death of Ted Healy?" Howard was stunned. He dropped the phone. Folding his arms over his head, Howard started to sob. Curly and Larry rushed into the phone booth to warn Howard that their train was about to leave. They found him crumpled over, crying. Since Howard seldom openly showed his emotions, Larry cracked to Curly, "Your brother's nuts. He is actually crying." Howard did not explain the reason for his emotional breakdown until he boarded the train. When they arrived back in Hollywood, they learned the details of Healy's death from a writer friend, Henry Taylor. Taylor told Howard that Healy had been out drinking at the Trocadero (Trocadero (Los Angeles)) nightclub on the Sunset Strip, and an argument broke out with three college boys. Healy called them vile names and offered to go outside the club to take care of them one at a time. Once outside, Ted did not have a chance to raise his fists. The three men jumped him, knocked him to the ground and kicked him in the head, ribs and stomach. Healy's friend actor Joe Frisco came on the scene, picked him up from the sidewalk and took him to his apartment, where Ted died of what medical officials initially called a brain concussion (Concussion).

''A Brief History of Covered Bridges in Tennessee'' at the Tennessee Department of Transportation; retrieved 2008-Feb-06 The design uses vertical members for compression (compression (physical)) and horizontal members to respond to tension (Tension (physics)). What is remarkable about this style is that it remained popular even as wood gave way to iron, and even still as iron gave way to steel. ''The Pratt Truss'' courtesy of the Maryland Department of Transportation; retrieved 2008-Feb-6 The continued popularity of the Pratt truss is probably due to the fact that the configuration of the members means that longer diagonal members are only in tension for gravity load effects. This allows these members to be used more efficiently, as slenderness effects related to buckling under compression loads (which are compounded by the length of the member) will typically not control the design. Therefore, for given planar truss with a fixed depth, the Pratt configuration is usually the most efficient under static, vertical loading. In 1636, when under suspicion, Miantonomoh went to Boston to prove his loyalty to the colonists. In the following year, during the Pequot War, he permitted John Mason (John Mason (c.1600-1672)) to lead his Connecticut expedition against the Pequot Indians through Narraganset country. The Pequot were defeated in this war. In 1638, he signed for the Narraganset the tripartite treaty between that tribe, the Connecticut colonists and the Mohegan Indians, which provided for a perpetual peace between the parties, and Miantonomoh was given control over eighty of the two hundred Pequot. However, conflict continued with the Mohegans over control of the Pequot people and land. Miantonomoh tried to organize other tribes throughout the English colonies in a union against the English. left thumb Miantonomo's Monument located in Sachem's Park, Norwich, Connecticut (Image:Miantonomoh Monument 1.jpg).

Flying a Curtiss H12 flying boat on reconnaissance, Leckie downed the German zeppelin ''L22'' (List of Zeppelins) near Terschelling on May 14, 1917. Fifteen months later, during a nighttime raid on August 6, 1918, a German zeppelin formation under the command of ''Führer der Luftschiffe (FdL.)''

For St. Augustine, Florida, three northeastern architects, New Yorkers (New York City) John Carrère and Thomas Hastings (Thomas Hastings (architect)) of Carrère and Hastings and Bostonian Franklin W. Smith, designed grand, elaborately detailed hotels in the Mediterranean Revival and Spanish Revival (:Category:Spanish Revival architecture) styles in the 1880s. With the advent of the Ponce de León Hotel (Carrère and Hastings, 1882), the Alcazar Hotel (Lightner Museum) (Carrère and Hastings, 1887) and the Casa Monica Hotel (later Hotel Cordova) (Franklin W. Smith, 1888) thousands of winter visitors to 'the Sunshine State' began to experience the charm and romance of Spanish influenced architecture. These three hotels were influenced not only by the centuries old buildings remaining from the Spanish rule in St. Augustine (St. Augustine, Florida#Spanish rule) but also by ''The Old City House'', constructed in 1873 and still standing, an excellent example of early Spanish Colonial Revival architecture. - N842D Boston, Massachusetts February 28, 1963 Douglas DC-7 Person ran into propeller (suicide) - - Flight 160 (Pan Am Flight 160) ''Clipper Titian'' Boston November 3, 1973 Boeing 707-321C (Boeing 707) Smoke in cockpit, in-flight fire, loss of control - - Flight 30 (World Airways Flight 30) Boston, Massachusetts (Boston) January 23, 1982 McDonnell Douglas DC-10 Weather - Brewer was born in Boston.

After selling one to Boston grocery magnate Charles Adams (Charles Adams (ice hockey)), Duggan arranged with Tex Rickard to have a team in Madison Square Garden (Madison Square Garden (1925)). Rickard agreed, but play was delayed until the new Garden was built in 1925. In April of that year, Duggan and Bill Dwyer (Bill Dwyer (gangster)), New York's most-celebrated prohibition bootlegger, were awarded the franchise for New York. Somewhat fortuitously given the shortage of players, the Hamilton Tigers (Hamilton Tigers (ice hockey)), who had finished first the season before, had been suspended from the league after they struck for higher pay. Dwyer duly bought the collective rights to the Tiger players for $ (United States dollar)75,000 and moved them to the newly built Garden. The Tigers franchise was suspended and never returned; the NHL does not consider the Americans to be a continuation of the Tigers--or for that matter, of the Tigers' predecessors, the Quebec Bulldogs. 350px right thumb The New York Americans in 1929.

At the NHL league meeting of April 17, 1925, Dwyer was granted an expansion franchise for New York. During the 18th century, Middletown became the largest and most prosperous settlement in Connecticut. By the time of the American Revolution, Middletown was a thriving port, comparable to Boston or New York in importance, with one-third of its citizens involved in merchant and maritime activities. Slavery was part of the early economy of Middletown; African slaves were brought to the town in 1661 from Barbados; by 1756 Middletown had the third largest African slave population in the state of Connecticut—218 slaves to 5,446 whites. Besides Marblehead Neck, there are also two other villages within town, Devereux to the southeast and Clifton to the southwest. Given its small area, most of the residential land in town is thickly settled. Marblehead's town center is located approximately four miles from the center of Salem (Salem, Massachusetts), sixteen miles northeast of Boston and twelve miles (19 km) southwest of Cape Ann. It is bordered by Swampscott (Swampscott, Massachusetts) to the south, and Salem to the northwest. (Because Salem's water rights extend into Massachusetts Bay, there is no connection between Marblehead and the city of Beverly (Beverly, Massachusetts) across Beverly Harbor.) A 2005 film remake of ''Fever Pitch'', directed by the Farrelly Brothers with Hornby as an executive producer, starred Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore. In this adaptation (based on the 1997 film, not the 1992 book), the action is moved from London to Boston, the focus of the protagonist's obsession is shifted from football (Association football) to baseball, and the story centers on the 2004 Boston Red Sox season, which culminated with the team's first Major League Baseball World Series victory (2004 World Series) in 86 years. This championship was entirely coincidental; the filming of the 2005 version was being done during the 2004 regular season, including scenes filmed at Fenway Park during actual games. As the Red Sox continued to progress through the playoffs, the Farrellys had to rewrite the script to include the historic moment. Fever Pitch was produced by ELC Productions Ltd., Fox 2000 Pictures, Wildgaze Films, Alan Greenspan Productions, and Flower Films. Low fares were causing the company to lose money.

San Juan, Puerto Rico, where the company was building a new hub, was the center of the scheduled network, and by the end of 1985 Arrow Air was connecting the destination with Montreal, New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Baltimore, Orlando (Orlando, Florida), and Miami.

Throughout the book, Hawthorne explores themes of legalism (Legalism (theology)), sin, and guilt. The following are historical and Biblical references that appear in ''The Scarlet Letter.'' * Anne Hutchinson, mentioned in Chapter 1, The Prison Door, was a religious dissenter (1591–1643).

The theatre was one of the early adopters of the continuous variety show which ran from 10:00 in the morning until 11:00 at night, every day. Previously, shows ran at fixed intervals with several hours of downtime between shows. With the continuous show, you could enter the theatre at anytime, and stay until you reached the point in the show where you walked in.

The first showing was on June 29, 1896, they had obtained the exclusive American rights to the Lumière apparatus and their film output. They then opened theatres in Philadelphia, and Boston, and then smaller theatres in the East and Midwest of the United States, buying out rival smaller chains. They signed a contract with Biograph Studios in 1896 which lasted until July 1905 when they switched to Edison Studios as their supplier of motion pictures. Keith and Albee merged their theatre circuit with Frederick Freeman Proctor in June 1906. Because of the complexity of the variables discussed, it is necessary to create a computer model that can analyze sound levels in the vicinity of roadways. The first meaningful models arose in the late 1960s and early 1970s addressing the noise line source (e.g. roadway). Two of the leading research teams were BBN in Boston and ESL (ESL Incorporated) of Sunnyvale, California. Both of these groups developed complex mathematical models to allow the study of alternate roadway designs, traffic operations and noise mitigation strategies in an arbitrary setting. Later model alterations have come into widespread use among state Departments of Transportation (Department of transportation) and city planners, but the accuracy of early models has had little change in 40 years. birth_date commons:Boston
