Heralds of the Revolution

As one of the oldest cities in the United States, Boston often played an important role during key moments in the history of the USA and especially in 1770s, around the time of the American Revolution with events such as the Boston Massacre (1770) and the Boston Tea Party (1773), both leading up to the American Revolutionary War (1775-1783), and the Battle of Bunker Hill during the Siege of Boston in 1775.

In 1951, a 4-kilometre long path, called the Freedom Trail, was established that passes by sixteen important locations from the history of the USA, such as the Boston Common Boston Common, the Massachusetts State House, Faneuil Hall and the Old State House. Tours guides, dressed in 18th-century costumes, are sometimes found on the Trail explaining about the history of Boston and the birth of the United States. We saw this man, carrying a number of newspapers announcing the Boston Tea Party, in Tremont Street.

I added one other tour guide in the WS, too.
