More About This episode

It was founded by religious exiles and made famous by a massacre, a tea party, and a nighttime horse-ride into history. Boston truly is a revolutionary city and a hub of constant change--something the New Englanders who call it home know well, from the battles their ancestors waged against British forces in the fight for America's freedom to the dazzling new neighborhoods created out of marshes and swamps. Celebrate a city of many firsts and see how it continues to lead a path into America's future.
