To the editor: Lifting DPA no answer for waterfront, fishermen – Charlee Bianchini, Gloucester

gdt iconWhen doing research for my undergraduate thesis in American Studies, I came across a theory that stated that, without Gloucester’s fishing industry, the Plimoth (Plymouth) Plantation could not have survived. And without Plimoth’s spirituality and hope for a better future in the new world, Gloucester could not have survived. Hence, without the two together, we would not be here today. Maybe it’s a little much to say that all of America is founded on these two communities, but I find it intriguing to think about. Without Gloucester and its fishermen, there would be no United States of America. [email protected] 08:27
