Our 90 minute Revolutionaries walking tour offers a unique, exhilarating perspective on early American history.
Students will leave textbooks behind for the day to walk in the footsteps of historical revolutionaries from Cambridge, Massachusetts. They will share in the experiences of well known historical figures like the venerable John Adams or lesser known folks like the cunning (and clumsy) midnight rider William Dawes or the courageous and controversial Anne Hutchinson–all residents and rabble-rousers from Cambridge.
Our tour spans many topics and decades, but in a fun and engaging manner, ensuring your students walk away with a newfound excitement for history. Our guides show your students only the most exciting and historic sites in Harvard Square. Among the many sites on our tour are: the foundations of the first buildings at Harvard, the old burying ground housing dozens of Puritans, fallen heroes, and intellectuals, and the historic Cambridge Common where George Washington first took command during the American Revolution.
More exciting than the buildings themselves however, the stories and tales hidden in the streets of Cambridge will capture students’ imaginations and help develop a lifelong appreciation of history.
