The Boston Globe's Mike Barnicle hosts this captivating two-hour tour of America's most historic city.
It is the first American city, the "Cradle of Liberty," the home of patriots like Paul Revere. The history of Boston stretches back some 365 years, and much of the past is still visible in the modern metropolis.
THE HIDDEN HISTORY OF BOSTON is a feature-length tour of this most American of cities. Host Mike Barnicle, a longtime correspondent for The Boston Globe provides an insightful, warm look at his hometown. Go down the fabled "Freedom Trail," a three-mile trip that winds past historic sites including the Boston Common, The Old State House, Faneuil Hall and the Paul Revere Home. Learn the little-known stories behind events like The Boston Massacre and Tea Party. And go further afield to visit the Longfellow House and Springfield Armory, where history was made and can still be felt today.
From Boston Harbor to Fenway Park, this is a patriotic tour of the city residents still (only half-jokingly) call "the hub of the universe."
