Boston's Revolutionary War

"The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people..."

Over two centuries ago, many Bostonians joined their fellow colonists in choosing the path of revolution. They pursued the ideals our nation became founded upon -- liberty, equality, and representation. Today, we commemorate the 250th anniversary of the journey to the Declaration of Independence, the Revolutionary War, and the founding of the United States of America. As the National Parks of Boston recognizes this significant milestone, we encourage you to explore this page to learn more about this history and Boston's pivotal role as the "Cradle of Liberty."
