American History in 1700’s colonial Boston;
- In 1742 Peter Faneuil, Boston’s wealthiest merchant, built Faneuil Hall as a gift to the city.
- The edifice was home to merchants, fishermen, and meat and produce sellers, and provided a platform for the country’s most famous orators. It is where colonists first protested the Sugar Act in 1764 and established the doctrine of “no taxation without representation.”
- Firebrand Samuel Adams rallied the citizens of Boston to the cause of independence from Great Britain in the hallowed Hall, and George Washington toasted the nation there on its first birthday.
- Down through the years, Faneuil Hall has played host to many impassioned speakers, from Oliver Wendall Holmes and Susan B. Anthony to President Bill Clinton and US Senator Ted Kennedy, always living up to its nickname, “The Cradle of Liberty.”
In the VIDEO learn about Paul Revere’s famous ‘midnight ride’ in April of 1775 on horseback from Boston going west towards Concord and Lexington to alert the countryside settlers and the Minutemen that the British have already landed in the Boston harbor and to be aware and be prepared; “the British are coming” to fight at the battles of Lexington and Concord, dramatized in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow‘s poem, “Paul Revere’s Ride“. Paul Revere was an American silversmith, an early industrialist, and a Patriot in the American Revolution.
On April 19th 1775 the Battles of Lexington and Concord were the first military engagements of the American Revolutionary War.
The Americans won the battle. The British retreated back to Boston. The encounter proved to the British that the American army was not just a band of unorganized rebels, but an army that deserved respect.
Lexington and Concord took place on April 19, 1775.
April 19th is now called PATRIOT’S DAY.
And of course the name PATRIOTS is famously recognized for the successful football team.
