How did Britain's blockade of the Boston harbor affect the trade in Boston?

𝗛𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗿𝘆 𝗔𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗖𝗮𝘂𝘀𝗲𝗱 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗕𝗹𝗼𝗰𝗸𝗮𝗱𝗲 𝗢𝗳 𝗕𝗼𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗻 𝗛𝗮𝗿𝗯𝗼𝗿

Let's start with what the blockade of the Boston Harbor is. The blockade of Boston Harbor is a law made by the parliament. The blockade of the Boston Harbor is one of The Coercive (Intolerable) Acts. The Coercive Acts was mainly caused by the Boston Tea Party. The Boston Tea Party is when 30 - 130 colonists dressed up as Indians and protested the tea taxes from the Townshend Acts. The colonists dumped 46 tons into the water. All because this happened the parliament put a Coercive Act.


Britain's blockade of the Boston Harbor affected the trade in Boston by isolating shipments from the Boston Harbor. Boston was now only relying on merchant trades to not perish. Merchant trades can not be fully relied on therefore it hurt Boston greatly.

Are there any Pittsburgh friendly bars in Boston?

Yes and no. In general, Boston is a friendly town with many bars and restaurants, large numbers of tourists and large numbers of students. People from Pittsburgh are more than welcome to visit, and many do. But if a Boston team is in a rivalry with a Pittsburgh team, then Boston pride takes over, and a Pittsburgh fan might find himself (or herself) teased or joked about. Somehow, I think the same thing would occur if a Boston fan visited Pittsburgh during a sports rivalry.

What Boston Strangler victim was from Beckley WV?

The first thing is that DeSalvo was never proved to be the Boston Strangler:

On 27th October, 1964, he entered a young woman's home posing as a detective. He tied his victim to the victim's bed, proceeded to sexually assault her, and suddenly left, saying "I'm sorry" as he went. The woman's description to the police led to his identification as Albert De Salvo, with the publication of his photo resulting in women coming forward in droves identifying him as the man who had assaulted them. At this point, De Salvo was not suspected of being involved with the spate of stranglings that had taken place over a period of nearly two years, and wasn't until he was being held on a rape charge that he confessed in great detail his activities as the Boston Strangler.

However, there was no evidence to substantiate his confession, and as such, stood trial for earlier, unrelated crimes of robbery and sexual offences. He was sent to prison for life in 1967, but was to be murdered six years later while in his cell.

How and why was Boston founded?

Boston was founded by wayward Puritans, who - for whatever resons - sought to get away from Plymouth. The Reverend William Blackstone was the first to settle there, building a house on what is now Beacon Hill - one of three hills that made up the Boston area - in 1624. Blackstone is also considered to be the first Christian to settle in Rhode Island. Keep in mind that this was a much thinner piece of land, as much of modern Boston lies on recently-placed landfill. Puritan settlers of the Massacusetts Bay Colony, who were on the less receptive Mishawum(Charlestown) Peninsula, eventually crossed the river and joined Blackstone's growing settlement. This was the basis of Modern Boston.

Beacon Hill was originally three hills(thus the word Tremont), two of which were leveled for real estate purposes by industrious men. One was used to fill in "the Back Bay," and the other was leveled to fill in what is now known as Charles Street at the foot of Beacon Hill, preventing the Crarles River from further encroachment. More importantly, the fill was also used to level the "West End" area and provide a stable footing for the North Station - where textiles from the City of Lowell could finally reach Boston by train. Mr. Lowell bbbuilt his first textile mill on the Charles River in the city of Waltham, but soon found more water power was needed. Investors bought a vast amount of land at the confluence of the Merrimack and Nashua Rivers, designed and built their city of canals, mills, bridges and the City was named after Lowell shortly after his passing. The Middlesex Canal had been dug from Boston to Lowell before the advent of trains, with horses pulling barges. Extremely inefficient and costly, this was used for perhaps a decade before the demolition of Trimount - leaving only Beacon Hill.

Where can you find information on Charles Cullis and late 19th Century Protestant social welfare?

I did some work on Charles Cullis for my own dissertation. You might find the material useful. It is contained in my book E.W. Kenyon and the Postbellum Pursuit of Peace, Power and Plenty, Scarecrow Press, 1997. In particular, I believe that he is the founder of the modern bible college movement. Many folks give credit for this to A.B. Simpson, but Simpson was simply following Cullis' model.

Why was Ole' Deluder Satan Act passed in Massachusetts?

== This act, known today as the Ole' Deluder Satan Act, established the first town school system in America, a system that recognized the importance of the Bible in a civilized society. Ref. America Land I Love, 1994, A Beka Books, page 35 == The Ole' Deluder Act was passed in Massachusetts in the mid 17th century because the Puritans were deeply religious and believed in the very real presence of evil/Satan. They believed if they read and studied the Scriptures enough they could resist evil and Satan's temptations. This Act was the first Education Act in America to make sure all townships with 50 or more households provided a school to teach children to read and write. Learning to read was a necessity in order to thwart the Ole' Deluder (Satan).

Did Boston have a name prior to being called Boston?

Originally, Boston was named Tremontaine (three mountains). This was in reference to the three large hills found on the Shawmut Peninsula. It's a good thing the name didn't stick because today only one of the three hills remains (Beacon). The other two were removed to supply fill material for Back Bay.

Boston was named after Boston, Lincolnshire, England. Back then many of the town's prominent citizens had emigrated from the English village.

Boston was the first city in the United States to celebrate First Night. It came into existence in 1976 to bring the neighboring communities of the city together in a joint celebration, while providing the public with an alternative way of ushering in the New Year. The commitment of a group of private citizens to these goals marked the beginning of a new tradition: The First Night Celebration. Since 1980, this concept has inspired many communities from Tampa to Honolulu, to start their own First Night Celebrations.

Meteorology and Weather

How many snow storm this season in Boston MA?

It really varies: it is a truism that Boston's weather is very changeable. Some years, Boston has hardly any snow. Some years, Boston gets several large storms and not much more than that. And some years, it snows a lot, such as in the Blizzard of 1978. In 2012, Boston had several winter months of unseasonably warm weather and hardly any snow at all -- for example, in December of that year, there was only 3" of snow the entire month. In January 2013, there was even less-- 1", and several days when temperatures soared to 60 degrees, leaving ski lodges wondering if they would do any business at all. But that all changed in February 2013, when there were several big storms that left a total of 34", more than making up for the previous lows.
