On our recent trip to Halifax, we were taken to the story of the explosion. Being from Boston, I am well aware of the Christmas tree every year from the city of Halifax to the city of Boston (Thank you), but I did not know the details. We learned the facts from talking to some folks and reading material we found in a bookstore near Halifax Historic Properties. But in knowing the facts, we found the Memorial Bell Tower to be simple yet powerful. It is a quick walk form your car, once you find it in Fort Needham Park. We were very glad we took the time.
