FC: MY TRIP TO BOSTON 2009
1: This is a picture of Copp's Hill, one of the oldest burial grounds in the United States. A burial ground is kind of like a graveyard, but a little different. In a graveyard there is one body next to another, but in a burial ground there are many bodies piled on top of each other. In this burial ground you will find Samuel Adams grave and Paul Reveres. The tour guide told us once there was a lady walking around the burial ground and she stepped on a grave and fell in. Copp's Hill was one of my favorite sites on the trip.
2: This a picture of me and Fred trying to see who could take a picture the fastest.
4: They named the street after the battle that took place at Bunker Hill, June 17, 1775. They have a big monument at Bunker Hill to commemorate the battle. The monument is 221 feet tall and there are 294 steps inside. The other street sign is Lexington Street. This was where the opening shots of the American Revolution were fired, during The Battle of Lexington, April 19, 1775. | This a picture of Bunker Hill St. and Lexington St.
5: The Duck Tour was a ton of fun.
6: This is a picture of my good friend Jack.
7: This is a Ian on the bus tours. we were all tired because we were up at 6
8: One of the most historical buildings in Boston is the State Building. I like this building a lot because of its gold roof. The roof is made of gold tissue. The day we went to the building there were about 20 news vans outside. I suppose that there was something important going on inside.
9: THE BLUE MAN GROUP
10: This is a picture of the Old North Church. It's the oldest church in Boston and was built back in the 1700 hundredths. The steeple is the tallest in Boston reaching 191 feet. Instead of having normal seats in a church, they have little custom boxes. A family would have to buy the box to be able to customize.
11: This is a statue a Ben Franklin. This statue marks the entrance to the first public school in America. The school was founded in 1635. Many famous men attended the school like Ben Franklin, Sam Adams,John Hancock and Robert Treat Paine. This was one of the spots that we walked to during the freedom trail.
12: This is a picture of Paul Revere's house. This is the oldest building in downtown Boston. His Home was built in 1690 he lived there from 1735 to 1818. The house was really cool because it was one little old house with tons of modern buildings around it.
13: BOSTON WAS SO MUCH FUN
