Massachusetts Historical Society: Object of the Month

With thousands of items in their collections, the Massachusetts Historical Society (MHS) is able to call on several centuries of fascinating historical items, and each month they share a new item on their "Object of the Month" webpage. Here visitors will find a digital image of the item, along with an interpretive essay, and a list of suggested readings. Recently profiled items include a Civil War-era letter from a Massachusetts soldier to his mother and a letter from the Reverend Jeremy Belknap (the founder of the MHS) describing a "Plan for an Antiquarian Society". Visitors can also use the "Object Archive" to view items all the way back to August 2001.
