Boston is the capital and also the largest city of Massachusetts, along with being the largest city in New England. This great city has something for everyone who visits either for a few days or more. The population of Boston grows each year, simply for the sheer historical value and the numerous educational assets it provides.
As per some information gathered from http://www.wikipedia.com , Boston was named after Boston, Lincolnshire, England by many prominent colonists who emigrated there.Looking at the historical aspects of the “Walking City” of Boston, one can open any history book in a local library to learn much. In the early 1600’s Puritan colonists, from England, settled on the Shawmut Peninsula. Later, in the 18th century, Boston was the city where several major events, during the American Revolution, took place. The famous Boston Tea Party and the Boston Massacre as well as the Battle of Bunker Hill and the Siege of Boston are well known. You are probably aware of Paul Revere during this time in history, making his midnight ride on horse back. Archaeologists have excavated some sites proving prehistoric Native American habitation as early as 5,000 BC.
My long time girlfriend from high school live in this area for many years and supplied me with much infomation. Margie was a school teacher and an educated scholar for details. Boston Harbor was a convenient region with the numerous, relatively small rivers to keep it a leading port for shipment of goods. Manufacturing in mills and factories sustained the wealth of this city with strength. Many emigrants from Ireland, Germany, Italy, French Canada, Russia, Poland, Lebanon and Syria predominated the influx to this area. Changing the cultures and tone of the city, it became more art oriented as well as politically secure with the mixture of this new population explosion.
Puritans founded the first public school in Boston as well as the first College. Harvard, which was founded in 1636, is still an educational star by most people’s standards. Massachusetts General Hospital, Beth Israel, Deaconess Medical Center, Shriners and Brigham and Women’s Hospital with others still lead the nation in medical innovation and expert patient care. These are the points where medical students have practical experience as well while they intern for medical school.
