DHL is recognized for its dedication to reducing emissions within the shipping industry. In 2014, it acquired StreetScooter, a producer of electric vehicles intending to reduce its carbon footprint in delivery operations. The German conglomerate announced a 4.9 percent average rate increase for US account customers beginning January 1, 2021, compared to 2020. While they are a good choice for overseas delivery, it is not a feasible alternative for shipping within the US. Since the company is a non-US firm, domestic flights between U.S. airports are not permitted. As a result, U.S. domestic services are contracted to other companies. DHL does not offer local and international services in all locations. Note that for service failures on its part, DHL provides refunds.
History Of The Town Of Littleton MA
Littleton was the site of the sixth Praying Indian village established by John Eliot in 1645 consisting of mainly Native Americans of the Nipmuc and Pennacook tribes. It was called Nashoba Plantation, on the land between Lake Nagog and Fort Pond. The term “Praying Indian” referred to Native Americans who had been converted to Christianity. Daniel Gookin, in his Historical Collections of the Indians in New England, (1674) chapter vii. says:
Nashoba is the sixth praying Indian town. This village is situated, in a manner, in the center, between Chelmsford, Lancaster, Groton, and Concord. It lieth from Boston MA about twenty-five miles west-northwest. The inhabitants are about ten families, and consequently about fifty souls. At the time of King Philip’s War between the English and Native Americans, the General Court ordered the Indians at Nashoba to be interned in Concord. A short while later, some Concord residents who were hostile to the Nashoba solicited some militia to remove them to Deer Island. Around this time, fourteen armed men of Chelmsford went to the outlying camp at Wameset (near Forge Pond) and opened fire on the unsuspecting Nashoba, wounding five women and children, and killing outright a boy twelve years old, the only son of John Tahattawan. For much of the war, the English colonists rounded up the Praying Indians and sent them to Deer Island. When increasing numbers of Massachusetts Bay officers began successfully using Praying Indians as scouts in the war, the sentiment of the white settlers turned. In May 1676, the Massachusetts General Court ordered that Praying Indians be removed from Deer Island. Still, many died of starvation and disease. Upon their release, most survivors moved to Natick and sold their land to white settlers.
The town of Littleton MA was settled by Anglo-European settlers in 1686 and was officially incorporated by an act of the Massachusetts General Court on November 2, 1715. It was part of the Puritan and later Congregational culture and religion of New England.
