Thoroughly enjoyed this first of four sessions on American history. It was particularly of interest as I live near Boston and often trek into the city just to visit the important historical sites and continue to learn more about Boston's role in our independence. Ben's narration was easy to follow and the maps with overlays of the 1770s maps with modern day maps was enlightening. I also enjoyed the current photos of some of the sites during the talk! This summary of the events (Boston Massacre, Revere's midnight ride, Boston Tea Party, Lexington/Concord confrontations with the British, etc.) in chronological order pulled the history together for me.Facts vs possible fiction were pointed out. I learned a bit more as a result of this session and will look more reflectively at some of the sites next time I walk by them or visit (Old South Meeting House, Bunker Hill, Old North Church, Old State House).
Such a wonderful variety of offerings!
Excellent instructors-Very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, cordial and patient.
The content is always great and the visuals on conversations really help understand what was going on in 1775-6!
