My Freedom Trail of Boston

My Freedom Trail of Boston
A Guided Tour of Hometown Geography and History

June to August, 2003

Introduction

      "The way we understand a town is classified into three," a famous Japanese folklorogist Kunio Yanagida explains, "First one is the understanding from a traveler's view point. Second is that from a resident's view, and third a citizen's." Although it may take years to really understand a town, the author wishes to approach into resident's view because it is the third visit to Boston and he loves it. We, the international students from the world, make 5 tours to Boston neighborhood guided by Prof. Jose Calvalho, a native citizen born in Cape Cod and settled into Boston. Although Boston has many places for travelers to visit such as museums, churches, or colleges, this tour will be another one of hometown geography along with its history. Before going to North End, Chinatown, Beacon Hill, South End, and Back Bay, let us search the City of Boston in general.

      The themes of the author's report are as follows: Why are Americans and especially Bostonians so proud of their history and hometown? Of course, it may be because Boston is the origin of American Independence on July 4, 1776, origin of democracy, and the capital of intellect. How did immigrants and citizens develop the City of Boston followed by successful development of the U.S. in general? Why are Americans so patriotic?
