History & Culture
Boston’s link to the sea has always been an integral part of her heritage, economy and culture. It is through the port of Boston that goods and ideas have flowed for centuries. It is the same port that has been defended so fiercely and has inspired so many to stand up for their rights and liberties.

Daniel Webster was once rebuffed in his effort to speak at Faneuil Hall. His support of The Fugitive Slave Law of 1850 earned for him the enmity of New England's abolitionists, and a worry that if he were allowed to speak, his appearance might spark a riot. He later spoke without incident.
