Recently, I saw an article in the online National Geographic that caught my attention. It described a visit to the Plimoth Patuxet Museums. I had not been aware of a museum in Boston that is focused on living history and conflict resolution.
From its website: “Plimoth Patuxet Museums brings to life the history of Plymouth Colony and the Indigenous homeland. Major exhibits include the Patuxet Homesite, 17th-Century English Village, Mayflower II and Plimoth Grist Mill.
Community. Conflict. Collaboration. Leadership. Faith. Self-government. Gratitude. Ideas as relevant today as they were 400 years ago! https://plimoth.org
If you are in Chicago-To see this Clifton House menu in person, stop by the Abakanowicz Research Center, which is free to visit. You can also see more items from our menu collection in our Google Arts & Culture story Touring Chicago’s Culinary History.
These days the notion of resolving conflicts feels positive and hopeful. One thing I am not conflicted about. That is the gratitude I have to all of our readers and contributors.
Thank you one and all. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
