I spent some of my formative years in the birthplace of our nation:

Massachusetts.

Class trips and my own perambulations have taken me to the origin of our War of Independence, Lexington Square, and Concord Bridge.

They are indeed hallowed. Concord Bridge especially has been kept up most wonderfully and is well worth a visit. Lexington square is a bit grown built-up, but there is a monument and you can get good Chinese food round the corner.

But, when I was very young, it so happened that there was a British kid in our class and we very nicely asked him how British history treated the American Revolution, and he answered us that it really didn't, because there was a lot of other stuff happening.

It seemed quite reasonable and none of us were at all put out about it.

It's sort of like when Christians with no other background ask Jews what about Jesus in their history and the answer is Jesus ain't in our history. We were doing other stuff at the time.
