Bostonians Behaving Badly | A Boston By Foot Walking Tour
Presented by Boston By Foot
September 12, 2012
Get in touch with your inner rebel and experience a most riotous tour through four centuries of protests, social violence and at times downright bad behavior. Known for the protests of the Stamp Act and Boston Tea Party, rebellions and uprisings took place throughout Boston's history. There's no city more riotous than Boston.
We'll examine many of the lesser known riots and street violence often fueled by the powerless who sought a voice over social, political, religious, and economic oppression.
Whatever your frustration, we have a riot for you. From the Boston Bread Riots to the burning of the Ursuline Convent, we'll explore the explosive displays of discontent by groups of people who took their grievances, and at times paranoia, to the streets. We'll ride the buses of conflict and resentment away from Commodore Knowles' impressments toward a good old-fashioned Boston Brothel Riot.
Wednesday, September 12 at 5:30p.m.
Tour starts at: 290 Congress Street at Fort Point Channel (Boston Society of Architects at Atlantic Wharf), Boston, MA 02210
