Boston, MA 02129
- Historical Site,
Bostonians blazed a trail of freedom from colony to independence. They met in town meetings to argue contemporary issues, they spoke against excessive taxes, and they were among the leaders in organizing a defense against British dominion. Today the sites of Boston National Historical Park symbolize the accomplishments of that revolutionary generation
