Pirates, Privateers & Patriots Tour: Freedom Trail
May 1 - November 25, 2012
Learn the tales of scallawag pirates who plied their trade in Boston harbor, the privateers who sympathized with the Colonists against the mighty British Navy, and the patriots who encouraged them to help overthrow British rule in 18th century Boston. You'll be surprised to learn who was involved in promoting "terrorist acts" against Great Britain as the American Revolution played out on Boston waters. Tall Ships are in Boston this summer, so take in the juicy history of Boston's harbor on this 90 minute walking tour with an 18th century costumed Freedom Trail Foundation guide. It's American history, but not the same old story.
Tour departs from BosTix Booth at Faneuil Hall.
