I'm amazed you both have found this group so fast!
Except for one year in the 70s in California I have lived all my life in New England. I was born in Maine, moved to Massachusetts when I was 20, then New Hampshire at 27, and back to Massachusetts at 44.
For extensions of New England, don't forget the outlier Western Reserve of Connecticut, now ignominously located in northeastern Ohio. I even got a courious Touchstone.
But, that map I linked to: Plymouth is only one of three colonies on it: there's also "Q" and "R" (for Quebec and Port Royal).
But I think you can learn a lot about America today looking at that Virginia/New England Map - those early divisions have had lasting impact. Don't forget the little Spanish "A" at the bottom, too. And the Dutch inserted themselves right in the middle between the two colonies.
>9 LydiaHD: I can't forget the Popham Colony, however short-lived, my brother & family live in Phippsburg where he is also a selectman. So, I am reminded of it each time I visit.
>11 Irisheyz77: nah. I think they were as sentimental about the mothership as our early colonists were.
I'm a displaced New Englander living in California now. I grew up in Bow, NH (right next to Concord - junction of 89 and 93) and lived mostly in Maine after graduating from URI. I also lived a couple of years in Boston right after college (who hasn't done that!??!). My heart will always be in New England, although I don't miss its weather (except in October).
I'm really enjoying reading all the threads here...and come late summer, I get very excited about the Red Sox!
