A Response To Centuries of Boston-centric US History At Last

Recommended Posts

I'm quite glad to see what appears to be a well-produced documentary coming to PBS that, at long last, puts  St. Augustine in its proper place in the chronology of American history. As Michael Gannon, Professor Emeritus of History at UF has observed, "By the time Jamestown was founded, StAugustine was up for urban renewal.” 


This should be awesome and just in time for St. Augustine's 450th Anniversary in 2015!

Essentially the same thing. Just as Phil Donahue once observed that, "News is what New York says is news" (because that's where the national news organizations were prior to Ted Turner's CNN), history was what Boston says is history because of the concentration of US liberal arts schools and the associated academic publishing industry there for much of our history.
