Last week I went to a conference in Boston, #Inbound16, which is a conference about inbound marketing and marketing in general. While there, I wanted to really take advantage of the rich American History that is present in Boston. So, I signed up to go on the Freedom Trail Tour. It was awesome.
Directory of Private Tutors
Here’s the entire directory of private tutors – tutors in every city, tutors in every state, tutors for every subject – and for every private tutoring rate and budget.
The Freedom Trail tour is a 90 minute walking tour where you see approximately 16 historical sites. On our tour, we met in Boston Commons and our tour guide was great. He taught us so much and I learned a lot of new historical facts that I didn’t know previously.
For example, I learned the following:
- The Boston Massacre: What we now know as the Boston Massacre was really a phrase coined by Sam Adams. The British called it “the unfortunate event on main street.” But Sam Adams, who was the Head of Propaganda, chose to call it “Massacre” to incite anger and protest. But, only 5 people died – hardly a massacre by most people’s definitions. The upshot? Sam Adams was an amazing marketer.
- Crispus Attucks: Crispus was a black freed slave and was the first person killed in the Boston Massacre. He’s recognized as the first person killed in the American Revolution. I had no idea. This was a cool fact to learn and know.
- Paul Revere: It’s often taught in school that Paul Revere warned the early settlers that “The British are Coming!”. This is actually false. Why? There was no concept of “American” at the time. Everyone on the new continent was still British. Instead, Paul Revere warned everyone by saying “The Regulars are out” – which means this: The guards that were regularly on their post have left, which means they are probably in search for the weapons and stockpiles of the revolutionaries. So, be ready.
The tour was so fun. Here were the sites we saw:
- The Boston Common – which is now a large park. But back then, it was the place where they fed cows and other livestock.
- Park Street Church – which was the church where early abolitionist met. It’s a historical site where there were many “firsts”, but I don’t quite remember what they were.
- Massachusetts State House – this was John Hancock’s house. Or the place where his house was. But it was torn down and rebuilt later.
- Boston Massacre – this was where it happened. Ironically, that site is now the location of Bank of America. Weird.
- Faneuil Hall – this was the place where there were many meetings. Even modern ones, such as Governor Mitt Romney, who held meetings there often.
- Granary Burying Ground – this is the location where Sam Adams, John Hancock, Paul Revere, and many other revolutionists were buried.
- Many more, I just don’t remember what they were, but I loved the tour.
Here’s a few pictures from the tour.
