The site marker for the massacre is well labeled and nice to see. Puts a lot of what happened on that day in perspective. The museum however was small and not worth the admission price. We were in and out in less than 30 minutes...and...More
The proximate cause of the massacre is attributed to a wig-maker's apprentice who confronted one of the British defense personnel and demanded payment for services rendered. A slap, some heated words, stones thrown, a snow-ball or two, and the brandishing of clubs This was a...More
The Boston Massacre Site is just a memorial set into the sidewalk. It is something interesting to look at. Unless you know your history or have a brochure you won't know what it symbolizes. There are no explanation signs. The memorial is on a busy...More
While it isn't a huge memorial, it is where the "unhappy disturbance in Boston" took place, so in and of itself it is an interesting place to stand. You must be walking to see the marker on the ground or you'll miss it. It is...More
The Boston Massacre was a riot that began when protesters hassled a sentry at the State House and he called in reinforcements and a fight broke out. The protesters had gathered outside of the State house to protest the large presence of British soldiers in...More
A historical site where on March 5, 1770, after months of tensions due to occupation and taxation, Bostonians and Redcoats clashed in the streets of Boston.
What ended with five civilians killed by gunfire, Crispus Attucks, Samuel Gray, James Caldwell, Samuel Maverick and Patrick Carr,...More
We've heard the stories, and seem the "pictures". Now tell us the truth. Paul Revere's illustration should be here to show what the propaganda did to stir up the trouble. 5 people were killed and the interpretation between the British and the Boston residents was...More
Read your history before you go as there really was no massacre. This is really a ‘spot’ outside the old Customs House that is marked by a sidewalk plaque. History about the event that occurred at this site has been massively distorted.
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have
your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
