The Boston Globe Magazine published a great article (with a horrible title) on the history of the Boston Post Cane and a bit about how the tradition continues today.
Read “Citizen Canes” at the Boston Globe web site.
The New England Historic Genealogical Society also mentioned our little web site in a recent newsletter — thank you!
Both of these articles have resulted in a number of updates submitted to us. We appreciate the research folks are doing and the time taken to let us know about what you’ve found.
