perspective on political events then unfolding in the nascent years of the early American republic. Other aspects of society in the late 18th century and early 19th century, including daily activities, medical practices, religious squabbles and sexual mores, add color to Ballard's account. Eddy returned to Massachusetts in August. While the Second Continental Congress and George Washington would not authorize, fund, or otherwise support military activities in Nova Scotia, Eddy was able to convince the Massachusetts Provincial Congress to provide some material support (primarily muskets, ammunition, powder, and other military supplies) for an attempt on Fort Cumberland. It also allowed Eddy to engage in recruiting in the District of Maine.

September 1777 (File:Massachusetts Revolutionary War loan certificate September 1777.jpg) The Boston Tea Party prompted the British government to pass the Intolerable Acts in 1774 that brought stiff punishment on Massachusetts. They closed the port of Boston (Boston Port Act), the economic lifeblood of the Commonwealth, and reduced self-government (Massachusetts Government Act). The Patriots formed the Massachusetts Provincial Congress after the provincial legislature was disbanded by Governor Gage. The suffering of Boston and the tyranny of its rule caused great sympathy and stirred resentment throughout the Thirteen Colonies. On February 9, 1775, the British Parliament declared Massachusetts to be in rebellion (Proclamation of Rebellion), and sent additional troops to restore order to the colony. With the local population largely opposing British authority, troops moved from Boston on April 18, 1775, to destroy the military supplies of local resisters in Concord (Concord, Massachusetts). Paul Revere made his famous ride to warn the locals in response to this march. On the 19th, in the Battles of Lexington and Concord, where the famous "shot heard 'round the world" was fired, British troops, after running over the Lexington militia, were forced back into the city by local resistors. The city was quickly brought under siege (Siege of Boston). Fighting broke out again in June when the British took the Charlestown Peninsula in the Battle of Bunker Hill after the colonial militia fortified Breed's Hill. The British won the battle, but at a very large cost, and were unable to break the siege. Soon afterwards General George Washington took charge of the rebel army, and when he acquired heavy cannon (Noble train of artillery) in March 1776, the British were forced to leave (Evacuation Day (Massachusetts)), marking the first great colonial victory of the war. This was the last significant fighting in present-day Massachusetts; the 1779 Penobscot Expedition took place in the District of Maine, then part of the Commonwealth. In May 1778, the section of Freetown (Freetown, Massachusetts) that later became Fall River (Fall River, Massachusetts) was raided by the British (Battle of Freetown), and in September 1778, the communities of Martha's Vineyard and New Bedford (New Bedford, Massachusetts) were also subjected to a British raid (Grey's raid). The large size of the county led to its division in 1760, with Cumberland (Cumberland County, Maine) and Lincoln (Lincoln County, Maine) counties carved out of its eastern portions. When Massachusetts adopted its state government in 1780, it created the District of Maine to manage its eastern territories. In 1805 the northern portion of York County was separated to form part of Oxford County (Oxford County, Maine). When Maine achieved statehood in 1820 all of the counties of the District of Maine became counties of Maine (List of counties in Maine). It was during Brooks's tenure that Massachusetts' territory of Maine (District of Maine) became an independent state. Having served seven terms, Brooks declined to run for an eighth term and retired to private life. His body is interred at Salem Street Burying Ground in Medford, Massachusetts. thumb right Massachusetts's '''''current''''' districts, since 2003 (Image:MA-districts-108.JPG) '''Massachusetts Congressional District 14''' is an '''obsolete''' congressional district which was in eastern Massachusetts and the Maine District (District of Maine). It was eliminated in 1963 after the 1960 U.S. Census (United States Census, 1960). Its last Congressman was Joseph William Martin, Jr., who was redistricted (Redistricting) into the tenth district (United States House of Representatives, Massachusetts District 10).

She returned to Borneo in June to support military operations and on piracy patrol for the rest of the year. On 23 August she departed Rosyth to join the East Indies Escort Force, arriving at Colombo on 25 October. There she acted as escort to repatriation convoys. After a visit to the coast of East Africa, ''Loch Insh'' returned to the UK in April 1946 and was decommissioned and placed in Reserve at Devonport (HMNB Devonport). Whilst in Reserve her Pennant number was changed to F433. Far East, 1945–1946 After sea trials ''Loch Killisport'' was commissioned in July 1945, sailing for the Far East to serve with the Eastern Fleet in August. In September she sailed from Aden in convoy to Cochin (Kochi, India), then to Colombo in October. Based at Singapore for escort duty and support of military operations in Java and Sumatra, she escorted vessels carrying former prisoners of war and civilian internees for repatriation. Prince Philip was an officer on board at that time. She returned to Britain in April 1946 to decommission and was laid-up in Reserve (Reserve fleet) at Plymouth. In 1948 her Pennant number was changed to F628. After five more months of local training operations and other preparatory tasks, ''Benjamin Stoddert'' finally got underway for another Middle East deployment on 28 November. Steaming in company with ''Hepburn'' (USS Hepburn (FF-1055)) (FF-1055) and ''Mahlon S. Tisdale'' (USS Mahlon S. Tisdale (FFG-27)) (FFG-27), she first sailed to the Philippines. After a week of upkeep at Subic Bay, ''Stoddert'' set out south on 21 December, stopping at Singapore on the 25th before passing the Strait of Malacca on the 26th and ending the year with a fuel stop at Colombo, Sri Lanka. The guided-missile destroyer continued on to the Middle East in the new year and relieved ''Goldsborough'' on station in the Persian Gulf on 6 January. Although Iranian and Iraqi attacks on neutral tankers had begun to increase in early 1987, no firm American policy regarding this "tanker war" had yet been established. This limited ''Stoddert''’s mission, therefore, to surveillance operations against Iranian forces, especially "Silkworm" missile (Silkworm missile) sites in the Strait of Hormuz, and to the provision of communications and other data links to friendly aircraft in the region. On 18 January 1942, Kondō's Main Force arrived in Palau alongside two fast carriers, with the intention of covering Japan's invasion of Borneo and the Dutch East Indies.
