Course description

We explore the siege of Boston—from the arrival of British troops in June 1774 to their evacuation on March 17, 1776. How did Boston and the surrounding communities respond to British occupation? How did this military action turn colonial resistance into revolution? In addition to time in the classroom, we visit crucial sites for Boston in the revolution—in Cambridge, Boston, Charlestown, South Boston, Dorchester, and Roxbury—to get a better understanding of the social, political, and military aspects of the American Revolution.
