Following the Freedom Trail

We went on a trip to Boston a few weeks ago. I highly recommend you visit the city if you haven't before. They have this really cool freedom trail that you follow through the city. It takes you to several places of significant U.S. history.
Here I am looking at an outfit that was once owned by John Hancock. He was quite a nice dresser I think!
This is Paul Revere's house. It is the oldest residence in Boston. It was slated for demolition in the early 1900's, but luckily a group of people worked to save it.
This is the Old North Church. It is the church where lanterns were lit from the church's steeple to warn the people of Boston that the British were coming.
A statue of Paul Revere.
Audra and Allen encounter a minute man.
More to come!

I want to go to Boston, it looks like a very interesting place. Dave enjoyed it when he went there in the spring too.

Looks like a very good adventure into history. I would like that.

I found my trip to South Jersey intriguing even though we didn't see much of historical significance. I was easy to imagine what a great field trip it would be. That's the way to do school!
