Melon's 10 New England Answers

1 USS Constitution, cannon balls bounced off her oak (Southern Live) planking so it was nicknamed Old Ironsides, undefeated in 40 battles, built in 1797 and is still a US Navy ship out to sea once a year (4th of July of course).

2 The Boston Massacre -- yes, the one that Samuel Adams helped provoke and that John Adams defended the regular army boys implicated.  You can see that the news (although old) distressed Shauna).

3 Stockbridge, MA -- There is a winter painting by Rockwell which made it famous (and he lived near too).

4 Yale

5 Mark Twain

6 Minutemen
