Credit Credit Tony Cenicola/The New York Times Supported by ByRussell Shorto June 17, 2019 Some people travel with a particular objective in mind: to find the past in the present. It’s an impossibility, of course — you never truly succeed, because the present is so very present. But in a wayward, fast-moving world, a focus on history can root you, and offer perspective. This was my idea on a recent trip when I set out to find New York’s origins.

He thought of the friends he had lost and the spouses they left behind, elderly men and women who now live alone in the oldest county in the country’s oldest state.“It hasn’t been easy for them,” Marshall said, sitting with his wife, Jane, in an 18th-century home beside the frozen Piscataquis River. The couple are active at an age when many of their peers have slowed almost to a stop.

LONDON — The demonstrators let out a collective scream: “Whose streets? Our streets!”Anger crackled in the air as the protesters — some in red MAGA caps or dressed in flag-themed clothing — grew incensed at a small group of liberal counterprotesters who were chanting “racist scum” at them from behind a metal barricade.“They’re the fascists!” a woman yelled back at the liberals, as her fellow demonstrators nodded approvingly.The scene had all the trappings of a Donald Trump rally: the virulent partisan collision, the bitter complaints about “fake news,” the fear that the country’s white population is under threat from immigrants, the sprinkling of Trump-themed hats and garb. But the hundreds of people gathered were English, not American, and they had traveled — many for hours by bus — not to see Trump but to cheer on a prominent nationalist and anti-Islam activist named Tommy Robinson, whose rise … [Read more...] about Trump inspires UK nationalists
