The birthplace of freedom

20 Aug

Carol and I are in Boston for a few days of sightseeing before we head for Gordon College, where our youngest daughter will be starting her college education.

Today we walked the Freedom Trail. Many of the sights gave us a greater appreciation for what our founding fathers gave and did so that we can enjoy freedom.

We saw the gravestone of Paul Revere as well as a statue honoring him.

The U.S.S. Constitution was also an impressive sight.

We also drove out to Lexington & Concord where we saw the place where the shot heard ’round the world was fired. We saw the monument honoring the Minutemen.
