FC: Boston Trip
1: This is the Old North Church.To the left is is the plaque welcoming you to the church.This is also the oldest working church. Above you will see the steeple where they hung the two lanterns signaling the British. 1 meant the British were coming by land and 2 meant by sea. These lanterns told the Army that the British were coming by sea thus giving the American's the advantage.
2: Poor Poor Squirrelly!
4: In Front of Fenway is to the left Jane Zech, and above are Jessy Quindlen and Me.
5: Fenway is the oldest baseball park in America, that is still in use.It has been around since 1912. Fenway is also the third smallest baseball park in America. Seating only 36,984 people in the day and 36,400 at night. Behind it are the Oakland-Almeda County Colossieum and Tropicana Field. | Fenway has had its ups and downs. For example Boston has this thing called the curse of the Bambino! This was a"curse" that lasted for 86 years for during that period the Red Sox never won a World Series. Until 2004 when they won The World Serties. The game was against the St. Louis Cardinals.
6: When walking on the Freedom Trail we went to the Boston Burial Ground. The Boston Burial Ground one of the most important sights in Boson. It contains lots of important peoples graves. A tradition in this cemetery in to place a coin on a persons grave. This apparently is a Jewish tradition, but people of all religions do it. | In the Boston Burial Ground some people buried there include John Hancock, Ben Franklin's parents,Thomas Paine, and Samuel Adams.The picture to the left of us Samuel Adams grave. MOst of the people here had to do with America gaining its independence. All of which are very important. An example of this is Paul Revere who told us the British were coming. Another is John Hancock who signed the Declaration of Independence so big the King wouldn't need his glasses to see it.
7: This Fanuel Hall. It is the place where the Boston Massacre took place. It is also the background for the famous painting of the Boston Massacre. The Boston Massacre took place on March 5th, 1770. It was a bloody battle that involved two groups, The British, and the Americans . This battle sparked the American Revolution. | This is Ben Franklins Statue in Front of the Old City Hall .
