Revolutionary War-Era Letter Stolen 60 Years Ago Returns to Massachusetts Archives

A Revolutionary War-era letter stolen nearly 60 years ago was returned to the Massachusetts Archives 

A Revolutionary War-era letter stolen nearly 60 years ago was returned to the Massachusetts Archives, the Boston Globe reports.

The two-page letter was penned on May 25, 1775, by Joseph Warren, a major general and war hero who wrote about the colonists' victory at Fort Ticonderoga -- a historic battle that was influential in forcing the British troops out of Boston, according to the newspaper.

"It is an important part of our history and was probably the last official letter he wrote before he was killed in the Battle of Bunker Hill,'' Secretary of State William F. Galvin told the Boston Globe. "It ties together a lot of significant historical events."

The letter was reportedly stolen about 60 years ago when the archives were kept in the basement of the State House.

It eventually made its way into the hands of a collector, the Globe reported, and when it was discovered after the collector's death while his estate was being liquidated, the state negotiated to buy it back for $8,000. Authorities don't suspect the collector was involved with the theft 60 years ago.
