4. Charlestown Neighborhood Council back in action. We were at the meeting last night, and it's going to take us a couple days to churn through it all. In the mean time, it's worth looking over some of the upcoming committee meetings.
5. America’s Oldest War: The War of 1812 is often overlooked in American history. Yet it was the “Second War of Independence” that secured our departure from the British Crown. A free lecture from a UMASS Amherst Ph.D. candidate will be held at the Old South Meeting House from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
