Freedom trail is undoubtedly the most attractive place to me, so historical and educational. Walking site by site is like reading a vivid history book. One by one, most important events leading to the funding of USA evolve in front of my own eye. In old south church, I can imagine how the crowd gathering angrily and listening the inspiring speech by Samuel Adams. Five bloody dead bodies were in King street where tea were dumping into sea several blocks away. It is Boston Massacre and Boston Tea Party.
It took me a long time to visit each exhibition inside, so I can't complete the whole trail. I visited State house, old south church and old state house. State house has a magnificent outlook and a glamorous ornament as well. The state house is built after funding of USA. There is a wooden cod fish hanging in the house of representative. They said that it is a good luck charm for Boston.
Old south church is a puritan church. Compared to several churches we visited days before, it's stunningly simple. It's almost not ornamented at all, both inside and outside. However it played a crucial role in American Revolution.
Old state house is the political center of Boston in the colony period. Both the governor and representative would use this building. To my surprise, though the independence of American eventually resulting in the eruption of revolution, some democracy system heritage from England were already practiced in colony world.
At last, this trip also answered me a question. Ever wondering why there is so many John Hancock Buildings in cities of USA? Who is this guy John Hancock? The answer is, John Hancock is really something. He is the fist man signing in the declaration of Independence. Besides, he is a Bostonian.
