In 1774 Paul Revere and his neighbors in the North End were forced to make difficult and dangerous choices. As sides were drawn, both Patriots and Loyalists labeled the other “enemies to this country.”

Join a National Park Service Ranger for a free 60 minute walk and decide who the real "Enemies to This Country" were in the months before the breakout of the War for Independence. The tour is limited to 30 people. Tickets are handed out on a first come, first served basis beginning 30 minutes prior to the tour time. Tours begin inside the Faneuil Hall Visitor Center and end at Old North Church.
