Cradle of Liberty

"Be awake! No man, or body of men, have a claim upon your liberty but yourselves."


William Cooper Nell

Boston holds an unparalleled place at the vanguard of American history, both as the hotbed of rebellion prior to the American Revolution and later the center of protest against the institution of slavery before the American Civil War. Hub Town Tours brings you up close as Bostonians struggle to define the principles enshrined in the Declaration of Independence: "We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness."
