Memorial Day on the Boston Commons

I spent a week on the College of Curiosity field trip “European America” last week, and was in Boston on Memorial Day weekend. Our tour, led by fellow 2DG blogger Jeff Wagg, included a walk through the gorgeous Boston parks, and to the weekend display: a U.S. flag for each Massachusetts citizen who had died in a war, from the Revolutionary War through today.

How many?  37,000 flags.
