Loved Melissa Berry's column

To the editor:

Just want to compliment you and Melissa Berry, author of the June 26 column, “The British Are Coming! Or Not!,” in the Newburyport Daily News.

Great article with a catchy headline! The images of local citizens scurrying in rampant commotion comes flying off the page creating terrific visuals. It’s a wonderful look back at local reaction to historic moments. And the “folly” of this episode adds great contrast to the well-documented and well-known historic accounts we all learn in school, books and at the movies about America’s monumental fight for independence. I enjoy Melissa’s work and think this is one of her best!

Congrats, again, to both of you and Melissa. It is clear she loves researching and revealing wonderful moments in time. And I, along with many others, am glad that you recognize her talent and enthusiasm!
