Freedom Trail

On Tuesday we went on the Freedom Trail in Boston. The trail or red line that goes through Boston takes you to all the historical sights in Boston that led to our freedom. Our first stop was the graveyard of Benjamin Franklin's parents, Mother Goose, and Paul Revere. Below is a picture of me standing on, or as my mom says, modeling, on Ben Franklin's parents' grave. It is the largest grave in the graveyard.

 Our second stop was Paul Revere's territory. Before we got there, we saw a few circus men outside his house. They were petty good. They even gave their little helper (a young boy) six bucks for standing still!
Paul Revere was a spy during the Revolutionary War. He was supposed to find out if the British were attacking by sea or by land. He was to carry one lantern if they were attacking by land and two if by sea. He ran around carring two lanterns after he got the information.

This ship is the U.S.S Constitution. It is the oldest war ship on water and fought during World War II. The ship is in good shape and has as many as five floors not including the deck!

Our last and final stop of the day was the Bunker Hill Memorial. We missed the last climb to the top by twenty-minutes, but we still enjoyed the view.
