Movoto Real Estate recently published a report about the best places to live in New Hampshire.

"Who has great maple syrup and even greater seafood? Who has purple lupine in bloom every spring and a blanket of snow on the ground for skiing every winter?

Legends of the Porcupine

blue porcupine

...Where else has this prickly but adorable creature been used as a symbol? Well, as early as 1394, Louis I, Duke of Orléans established the chivalric Order of the Porcupine, proclaiming himself Grand Master and bestowing this honor upon loyal knights who would wear “a tortil of three gold chains, at the end of which a gold porcupine hung on a green-enamelled flowered terrace”. The motto of the order was « Cominus et eminus » (“From close and from far”). Kind of like Porcupines in New Hampshire!!

Meanwhile, across the Channel, a blue porcupine was used as the heraldic symbol of the Sidney family. Sir Philip Sidney, poet and soldier of Penshurst in Kent, inherited the Lord Leycester Hospital, Warwick, and placed his mark above its doors.

Bitcoin Magazine's Take On Liberty Forum

I browsed the Internet and filed away stories of nanobreweries and porcupine quill crowns, and stumbled into a Facebook group dedicated to the Liberty Forum. The most noticeable pattern in the Facebook posts was the amount of people driving in from out of town. Several conference attendees were driving in from South Carolina, Michigan and other locations outside of New Hampshire. Others were members of the press, with requests being posted for Ben Swann’s journalists who would need a ride from Logan Airport.
