The Story of American History From Its Birth
Boston plays a central role in the story of America. A region swamped in lore, facts, and intrigue. One of the most historically significant cities in the country, Boston has history around every corner. Boston, Massachusetts, is frequently referred to be the birthplace of the American Revolution. It was founded in 1630 by English Puritans who had emigrated to the new world in search of religious freedom. Here, under the leadership of Samuel Adams, and the Sons of Liberty inspired the colonists to rebel against the dominance of British Rule.
Anti-British animosity peaked with the 1770 Boston Massacre, in which British forces opened fire on a crowd of colonists, killing five of them. The Sons of Liberty organized the Boston Tea Party and dumped over 45 tons of tea into Boston Harbor when the 1773 Tea Act imposed duties on imported tea. Paul Revere's ride, the Battle of Bunker Hill, the Battles of Lexington and Concord, and many other significant Revolutionary War events took place in or close to Boston. When the British withdrew from Boston in 1776, the Siege of Boston came to a conclusion, and the population rejoiced.
The Rise of a People: A Colonial Epicenter of American Progress
Boston quickly rose as a regional hub — a powerhouse for commerce, finance, religion, science, and education.
The colonial era saw many changes. Boston became a beacon of conspiracies, as courts and crowns battled it out and expansion and innovation superseded religious dogma and worship. Stories of abrupt transformation, ferocious conflict, agonizing exploitation, but also inspiring struggles for liberation. There are numerous definitions and concepts of freedom, not simply one single "freedom." The writings and stories about Boston learned in school are but a sample of the tales of the social, industrial, and environmental revolutions that took place in this magnificent colonial city.
The Flames of Liberty Are Lit
“No taxation without Representation!”
The battle cry that ignited our country occurred on these streets. Between 1765 and 1775 The American Revolutionary War seized the 13 colonies and Boston not only had an active part in it but quite possibly a decisive one. Boston is the city that impassioned the rebels and created the Sons of liberty. It is where the Boston Massacre took place. Where the Boston Tea Party was enacted — becoming a pivotal part of our history. The history of Boston is the history of our nation.
Massachusetts, the birthplace of William Lloyd Garrison and a longtime core of the abolitionist movement, became the first state in America to outlaw slavery in the 18th century, as Boston continued to grow. Irish immigrants came to Boston in massive numbers as a result of the Potato Famine. Later, Chinese, Italian, and other nationalities joined them. The first Boston Marathon took place in 1897.
Samuel Prescott, Paul Revere, William Dawes, Samuel Adams — And dozens more – all called Boston “home.”.
