National Parks of Boston, Leventhal Room, Boston Harbor Hotel, Rowe’s Wharf, Boston

Thursday, July 12, 2018

Adams National Historical Park, Adams National Historical Park Visitor Center, Quincy, MA

All three workshops are from
9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Massachusetts is steeped in the history of the American Revolution. It was in Boston that the first seeds of Liberty were sewn as men and women joined in resistance against the British Parliament. At Lexington and Concord resistance became open warfare, setting the colonies on the path toward independence. Throughout the growing conflict, ideas and leaders emerged to help people make sense of what was happening and define the higher cause at the heart of the conflict.

Explore history where it really happened! Sessions presented by National Park Service staff. For more information, full course agenda, or to register, contact Jim Hollister, Park Ranger, Minute Man NHP (978) 318 – 7829, jim_hollister@nps.gov
