Boston

Capital of Massachusetts


Boston is one of the most important cities in the history of the United States, and a great place to visit!  You can see the sites of the Boston Massacre and Boston Tea Party. You can visit the spot where the Sons of Liberty took their stance against British taxation, dumping creates of tea into Boston Harbor.

You could also follow the Freedom Trail to the Old North Church, where Robert Newman hung lanterns to signal the arrival of the British troops by sea. The Old North Church is the oldest standing church in Boston. Another great spot to visit is Faneuil Hall where Samuel Adams held meetings to discuss unfair taxes and gaining independence from Great Britain. Remember the scene from Rush Revere and the First Patriots?

Some of the greatest Patriots lived and worked in Boston such as Paul Revere, Dr. Joseph Warren and Samuel Adams. You will be surprised at how much you will learn!
