      About this Boston, Massachusetts tour

      It's long been said that history is written by the victors, and nowhere is that history more famous, quotable, and fascinating than at the sites you'll see along Boston's Freedom Trail.

      In a single walk, led by costumed guides expert in their storytelling skills, you'll encounter a mind-boggling array of landmarks around the Common, America's oldest park. Visit Paul Revere's modest home, dating from 1620 and the Old South Meeting House, where an impassioned crowd gathered on Dec 17, 1773, before heading to the infamous Tea Party.

      You'll see the Old North Church steeple, where the "One if by land, two if by sea" lanterns were hung to signal the approach of the British on the evening of Paul Revere's famous 1775 ride of warning to Lexington.

      Declaration-signers Samuel Adams and John Hancock rest at the Granary Burying Ground, while the burial ground on Copp's Hill is where Cotton Mather of Salem witch trial fame rests (probably not in peace), along with Robert Newman, the man who hung those two-famed lanterns in the church tower.

      At the Old State House, you'll see a balcony where the new Declaration of Independence was first read publically in July 1776. And the spot where, just six years earlier, tensions between colonists and British soldiers had boiled over with five locals killed in what was branded the Boston Massacre.

      Across the Charles River, the Bunker Hill Monument commemorates the revolution's first major battle, in which the barely prepared colonials were told, "Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes" and managed to kill or injure nearly half the redcoats before retreating.

      These and the other stops along the Trail together tell a story the world has never forgotten. One you'll appreciate in a revolutionary new way, having seen it in person.

      The beginning of the end

      The Boston Massacre was really a street fight that got out of control. In March 1770, a mob of around 50 Bostonians began expressing their displeasure with redcoat presence by throwing snowballs and harder projectiles at a British sentinel. Reinforcements were called in, and when they too were attacked, shots were fired into the crowd. Five were killed, including Crispus Attucks, an African American who earned the dubious distinction of being first to die in the War of Independence.
