Fun Facts For The State of Massachusetts
Massachusetts is named after the Massachusetts people, one of the many Algonquian peoples who lived in the area. Their neighbors the Wampanoag Confederacy are generally more prominent in United States history. The Wampanoag controlled a large portion of southern Massachusetts, including most of Cape Cod.
By the 1760s, Massachusetts was a hub of commerce and industry in the colonies. Boston had become the seat of leading (and radical) intellectuals. Bostonians were some of the most ardent supporters of independence. Protests like the Boston Tea Party led to the British closing the port of Boston and assuming direct control of Massachusetts Bay. As a result, the American Revolution began at Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775. Massachusetts native and President of the Continental Congress John Hancock was the first person to sign the Declaration of Independence.
The state has a temperate climate. The climate is colder but drier in western Massachusetts, although its winter snowfalls may be more severe than those nearer the coast. July is the hottest month, averaging about 71 °F (22 °C), in contrast to 26 °F (?3 °C) in January, the coldest month. Annual precipitation averages 42 inches (1,070 mm) in Boston and 44 to 45 inches (1,120 to 1,140 mm) in Worcester and Pittsfield, in the central and western parts of the state, respectively.
Despite its industrialization, Massachusetts has preserved many of its forests, and there are now nearly 150 state forests, reservations, and parks. Public hunting grounds amount to some 40 square miles (100 square km). About a dozen national wildlife refuges and the Cape Cod National Seashore allow further contact with nature. Not far from downtown Boston is the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University, which opened to the public in 1872 and has one of the largest collections of trees and shrubs in the United States.
Famous Peoples From Massachusetts
Jean-Louis Lebris de Kérouac (March 12, 1922 – October 21, 1969), often known as Jack Kerouac, was an American novelist of French Canadian ancestry, who, alongside William S. Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg, was a pioneer of the Beat Generation.
Raised in a French-speaking home in Lowell, Massachusetts, Kerouac “learned English at age six and spoke with a marked accent into his late teens.” During World War II, Kerouac served in the United States Merchant Marine; he completed his first novel during his service, though it would not be published until over forty years after his death. His first book to be published was The Town and the City, but he only achieved widespread fame and notoriety with the publication of his second novel, On the Road, in 1957. On the Road made Kerouac a beat icon, and he would publish twelve more novels during his life, in addition to numerous poetry volumes.
Kerouac is recognized for his style of spontaneous prose. Thematically, his work covers topics such as his Catholic spirituality, jazz, promiscuity, Buddhism, drugs, poverty, and travel. He became an underground celebrity and, with other beats, a progenitor of the hippie movement, although he remained antagonistic toward some of its politically radical elements. Kerouac would have a lasting legacy, greatly influencing many of the cultural icons of the 1960s, including Bob Dylan, the Beatles, and the Doors.
In 1969, at age 47, Kerouac died from an abdominal hemorrhage caused by a lifetime of heavy drinking. Since his death, Kerouac's literary prestige has grown, and several previously unseen works have been published. All of his books are in print today.
