John Winthrop's journal? The first map of New England? They're all in the collection of the Massachusetts Historical Society.
As part of its celebration of their 225th anniversary (225 years!), the society is hosting a MHS Madness Competition. They want to know: What's your favorite artifact in their collection? In the spirit of March Madness, they are pitting 64 of their favorite items into a head-to-head single elimination tournament.
It's fun! Take a look here, share the link with your students, and follow as a winner is announced on 14 March.
