Public History Takes a Forced Holiday

Description (Dublin Core)

While Patriot's Day traditions are on hold this year due to the coronavirus, Monday remains a holiday. There are no classes scheduled, and Suffolk employees are off for the day.

But history buffs will miss the traditional reenactment of "the shot heard 'round the world," and "Marathon Monday" is postponed until September.

Professor Kathryn Lasdow, director of Suffolk's Public History concentration, explains the ties between the marathon and the commemorations in Lexington and Concord and offers some ideas for celebrating the holiday virtually.
