The Quadricentennial Puzzle

It seems everyone is going Quad-crazy as this year marks the 400th anniversary of Hudson’s and Champlain’s legendary voyages down their eponymous bodies of water. (Throw in Fulton’s 200th commemorating his little steamboat adventure, and we’ve got a party!) So it’s no surprise that local radio host and quizmaster extraordinaire, Gary Cee, whipped up this special puzzle to honor all the hullabaloo. Test your knowledge of local lore with this clever crossword — or try your hand at one of Gary Cee’s other puzzle, “Across and Down the Valley.”
