It All Started In Boston: Great Field Trip Idea

We Are One: Mapping America's Road from Revolution to Independence
Bring your students for a free interactive tour of this world class exhibition at the Boston Public Library

View 100 objects from twenty partners including the British Library and Library of Congress including Paul Revere’s sketch of the Boston Massacre, Crispus Attuck’s pewter teapot and the Congressional Medal given to George Washington by the Continental Congress after the Siege of Boston. K-12 materials using primary sources from the exhibition are available free for download from our website.  

Unrest in Boston is the first of three “Map Sets” that contains lessons to help students develop critical thinking skills and build content knowledge about the events, history and outcomes of the American Revolution. Students will be able to use maps and other visual sources to understand the role of geography and place in the events of 1765-1776 in Boston.
