Begin your tour into American History at the Boston Common, the first stop on The Freedom Trail. Established in 1634, it is the oldest public park in the country. The park morphed from a community space for grazing livestock (and public hangings) to a political platform. After the Seven Year War, the British Empire was burdened with a debt of the war they just won. They imposed the Sugar Act and the Stamp Act, taxing sugar and all paper goods, respectively. It was the start of resistance as locals opposed the Stamp Act and was repealed. Colonists brought their celebration to the Boston Common then, and again at the end of the Revolutionary War. Ever since, it has opened up the field for protest. Martin Luther King Jr. brought the civil rights movement on its manicured lawns. Later on, voices echoed into the boundless skies against American involvement in the Vietnam War. These days, picnics and buskers are all you’ll see and the Boston Common is where to be to witness local life in full.
