To start of June 5th we pick up our tour guide for the day. Then we went to Little Italy and saw Paul Revere's house and statue. After Little Italy, we headed to the Old North Church then to the Granary Burial Ground to see where John Hanncock, Samual Adams, the five men who died durning the Boston Massacre, and many other people. We then went to the Boston Commons to learn about the cows that grazed there. After that we did the Freedom Trail but our tour guide didn't really go into the history of all the sites. Later, we went to Harvard Square and saw the library, the dorms, and the Harvard statue which was disappointing that we didn't get to take a picture with it and touch his foot even though people pee on it. I learned about the three lies of the statue: the date when it was established, the person who posed for the statue was not Harvard, and the school was not founded by Harvard - he just donated a lot of money and books to the school. We ate at Bartley's which was a burger joint that was so good! I would totally eat there again. Then we went to Lexington and learned about its history which was not one of my favorite places to see in Massachusetts. After that we drove to Concord and saw the the Old Manison House which I thought was cool because a lot of the peices were original. For dinner we went to Uno pizza which I thought was good but it was kinda like any other pizza place. We all decided to do the Freedom Trail again and see places the tour guide didn't show us. We saw the State Hall where the Boston Massacre happened. I like being able to actually see the building in person and learn about it by Marianne than the tour guide. After that long day we went to the hotel. I encountered many historical buildings for the first time that I had only read about in class. The tour director help lets you get a feel for things in Boston. The local tour guide gives you a lot of information you would not know, and fun little facts too. Experimental learning is so much better than class room learning because you are able to actually see the places in real life and it helps you to imagine how the people who helped build this country would have felt. The travels have made me appreciate what our founding fathers and other people who helped did, and how now people tend to take their freedom for granted.
