Sample Texts for Boston's Freedom Trail

1.       Boston Common, The State House, Park Street Church, The Granary Burying Ground, The King's Chapel and Burying Ground

 

Mr. Brown:         (Interrupting) But, sorry to interrupt, what does hang from the House of Representatives' Chamber? We got a bit side-tracked by those flags!

Guide:                  Indeed! The answer is .... A codfish!

Ben:                       A fish? How did it get up there?

Lucy:                      Isn't it a bit smelly?

Sam:                      Ugh! How long's it been there?

Guide:                  Since 1798! But don't worry - it's not real, it's actually made of wood.  But it is life-size - just under five feet long so pretty impressive .... Even if it doesn't do much swimming these days!

Sam:                      So what's it doing there? Seems a strange thing to have hanging from a ceiling in a State House!

Guide:                  It's actually there to act as a reminder of the importance of the fish industry, in particular cod, to our state.

Mr. Brown:         And what better way to be reminded - than having a giant cod hanging over your head!

 

2.       Old South Meeting House, Old State House, Boston Massacre Site and Faneuil Hall

Lucy:                      He means Samuel  Adams, Dad. Haven't you been listening?

Mr. Brown:         (Huffily) I thought I had!

Mrs. Brown:       So what was Sam's statement that got everything going?

Sam:                      You listening, Dad? "Gentlemen, this meeting can do nothing more to save the country".

Mrs. Brown:       Was that it? Not much of a speech if you ask me!

Sam:                      It was never meant to be a speech, mum! It was a sign to those men, dressed up as Mohawk Indians, to go and tip all that tea into the sea!

Ben:                       Wasn't it a bit salty?

3. Paul Revere's House, Old North Church and Copp's Hill Burying Ground

Lucy:                      How many children did he have?

Guide:                  Sixteen altogether! But 5 of these died young, and there were only eight of them living here at any one time.

Mrs. Brown:       Only! That sounds more than enough to me, in a house of this size! No wonder the master of the house was always off  - on his rides!

Mr. Brown:         You can hardly blame him! All those kids! I reckon I'd have taken up riding too!

Sam:                      So why did that Longfellow fellow choose Revere as his hero? Why not Dawes or Prescott?

Guide:                  Good question!

Lucy:                      With an obvious enough answer! What rhymes best with the opening line: "Listen, my children, and you shall hear  - Dawes,  Prescott or Revere? It's  not rocket science!

 

4. U.S.S. Constitution

Guide:                  And so we stand before Old Ironsides - the oldest commissioned warship in the world!

Ben:                       I thought you said this ship was the USS Constitution?

Guide:                  Correct. But she earned her nickname during the 1812 War when a sailor from a ship she was attacking, shouted out "Huzzah! Her sides are made of iron! See where the shot fell out!"

Sam:                      So her sides aren't actually made of iron?

Guide:                  No. They're made from a really strong wood called ‘live oak'. So strong in fact that cannon balls just seemed to bounce right off her!

5. Bunker Hill 

 

Guide:                  So. Who's feeling energetic?

Lucy:                      What? After the climb up this hill? Are you serious?

Mr. Brown:         Oh come on, Lucy. Surely you're not going to let a mere 294 steps stand between you and a great view of Boston?

Lucy:                      What? You mean there's no elevator to the top?

Guide:                  ‘Fraid not! Only one way up - using your feet!

Sam:                      Come on, sis! Surely you're not that unfit?

Lucy:                      Who said anything about being unfit? But before I do this act of madness, I want to know a bit more about why it's here. Not just to test fitness levels, I'm guessing!

Guide:                  Correct! It was built to celebrate the bravery shown at this very spot, at the famous Battle of Bunker Hill, on June 17th 1775 - even though this is actually Breeds Hill!
