If you want to reach deep and feel the inner life of the people who made the American Revolution, place yourself for an afternoon in the hands of the guides on Boston’s famous Freedom Trail, a series of surviving places where hearts and hands were raised and American principles were put into action.
During Women’s History Month, the Trail offers the Revolution Women tour. Meet the women who took part in the American Revolution, and the generations of women that followed on this guided tour of the Freedom Trail on weekend afternoons in March. The Trail leads to stories of four centuries of Revolutionary Women who changed history – featuring Anne Hutchinson, Mary Dyer, Abigail Adams, Mercy Otis Warren, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Harriet Tubman, Phillis Wheatley, and Susan B. Anthony.
Visit the places where women’s voices were heard and works were published, and where they were laid to rest along Boston’s iconic trail. Tours depart from the Boston Common Visitors Center at 139 Tremont Street at 12:45 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays in March.
