Where does the Boston Freedom Trail start and end?
Your journey through American history begins at Boston Common on the corner of Boylston & Tremont Streets. The Common is the final resting place for notable names in revolution history, including 15 men who participated in the Boston Tea Party, plus countless Redcoats who died in the Battle of Bunker Hill and the Siege of Boston. The 2.5 mile tour continues on to 14 more historic sites throughout the city and ends at the final stop, the USS Constitution, nicknamed "Old Ironsides," in the Charlestown Navy Yard. This well-traveled ship has seen battles around the world, from the West Indies to Brazil to the West African coast. It has been involved in the War of 1812 and the Barbary Wars, and is now permanently berthed in Boston. She makes appearances in Boston Harbor throughout the year, including the annual July 4th celebrations.
