Walk in the footsteps of the colonials and discover the struggles and triumphs of those who fought for freedom. Listen to stories about the men and women of the time; expect to learn about the high treason, mob agitations, revolutionary actions and the partisan fights of the American Revolution, told by the 18th century tour guides.
The Boston Freedom Trail starts at Boson Common and then northwards past Haymarket and onto North End before crossing the Charlestown Bridge, ending at the Bunker Hill Memorial.
