6. Massachusetts- The Bay State | Facts, Symbols, History (cold process soap) Batch #47
The State of Massachusetts facts and symbols.
This is part 6 of a 50 part series where I create a soap inspired by a US State and I share information about that state. The Sixth state is Massachusetts. I am going to be releasing these videos in order of when each state became part of our lovely country: The United States of America.
*Massachusetts (MA) February 6, 1788
-Nicknames: The Bay State (because of its proximity to several
large bays.), The Pilgrim State (references the settlement of the Pilgrims in Massachusetts and the establishment of the Plymouth Colony. The Pilgrims set up a government in Massachusetts with the “Mayflower Compact.” In 1621, the first Thanksgiving was held.), The Puritan State (because of the Puritan emigrants who arrived in Massachusetts looking for a place to practice their religion where they would not be subject to persecution.), The Old Colony State (refers to the original Plymouth colony.)
-Motto: Ense petit placidam sub libertate quietem (Latin) By the sword we seek peace, but peace only under liberty
-Anthem: All Hail to Massachusetts
-How it was named: named after the Massachusetts Indian tribe that lived in the Great Blue Hill region near Massachusetts Bay. The word Massachusetts is an Algonquin Indian word which roughly translates to “large hill place” or “at the great hill.”
-Citizens: Bay Staters
-Flag: displays the state coat of arms centered on a white field. The shield depicts an Algonquian Native American with bow and arrow; the arrow is pointed downward, signifying peace. A white star with five points appears next to the figure’s head, signifying Massachusetts as a U.S. state. A blue ribbon surrounds the shield, bearing the state motto Ense Petit Placidam, Sub Libertate Quietem (“By the Sword We Seek Peace, But Peace Only Under Liberty”).Above the shield is the state military crest: the bent arm holding a broadsword aloft. The sword has its blade up, to remind that it was through the American Revolution that liberty was won. The arm itself is of Myles Standish and signifies the philosophy that one would rather lose their right arm than live under tyranny.

“All Hail to Massachusetts”
All hail to Massachusetts, the land of the free and the brave!
For Bunker Hill and Charlestown, and flag we love to wave;
For Lexington and Concord, and the shot heard ’round the world;
All hail to Massachusetts, we’ll keep her flag unfurled.
She stands upright for freedom’s light that shines from sea to sea;
All hail to Massachusetts! Our country ’tis of thee!
All hail to grand old Bay State, the home of the bean and the cod,
Where pilgrims found a landing and gave their thanks to God.
A land of opportunity in the good old U.S.A.
Where men live long and prosper, and people come to stay.
Don’t sell her short but learn to court her industry and stride;
All hail to grand old Bay State! The land of pilgrim’s pride!
