Henry’s short stories actually take place in New York, but we still see the city through his eyes) by Judith Dunford. // . -- The Second Sinking Of The ‘Maine’ (Giving the men who died aboard America’s first battleship a decent funeral took fourteen years, three-quarters of a million dollars, and some hair-raising engineering. But in the end, they did it right.) by Carmine Prioli. // . -- Whatever Happened To New Math? (In the early sixties it was going to revolutionize American education. By the early seventies it had confounded a generation of schoolchildren. Today it is virtually forgotten. But as we head toward another round of educational reforms, we should recall why it went wrong.) by Jeffrey W. Miller. // . -- “Most Americans Don’t Know What Lincoln Really Represents” (For a good part of his life, the governor of New York has used history as a guide—and a solace) by William E.
