"Listen, my children, and you shall hereThere are so many historical sites in Boston.
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere"
-from Paul Revere's Ride by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Too many for us to have hit.
The one I wasn't willing to pass up was Old North Church.
This iconic symbol of the Revolutionary War is hidden within streets that feel like a maze when trying to navigate by GPS, but knowing the story behind that infamous bell tower made it worth the confusing effort.
We happened down a one-way street and were lucky that no cars were behind us because it allowed us time to observe and ponder the story for a few quiet moments.
"Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry arch
Of the North church tower as a signal light,-
One, if by land, and two, if by sea;"
