USA: Freedom Trail in Boston

Today I got a postcard from the USA.

It shows various locations of the Freedom Trail in Boston. Boston is the capital and largest city of the State of Massachusetts and also the largest city of New England. It is a centre of trade, education and tourism. It was founded as one of the first cities in the USA by Puritan settlers. The city was connected to several key events of the American Revolution, such as the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere's Midnight Ride and the Battle of Bunker Hill. The Freedom Trail was established in 1951 and includes 16 locations where the history of the USA was written. The trail includes the Old South Meeting House (upper left corner), where the Boston Tea Party was planned, and the Site of the Boston Massacre in front of the Old State House (upper row second from left).
