We’re in the last week of the Great American History Puzzle, and if you’ve passed every obstacle and dodged every arrow, all is (hopefully) starting to become clear. The treasure may seem to be almost in sight.
But at least two of the last three puzzles in the grid (including today’s!) may be among the hair-pullingest yet. I’m not a sadist, mind you. I genuinely think you’ll have fun with them. Maybe only in occasional moments of insight, or even hindsight. But that’s sort of how puzzles work, my friends.
Don’t give up! Not so close to your goal.
