Nowadays, Boston is an important city for business, education, and technology, but it suffered an unsettling war-torn history before that.
WHY IS BOSTON SO HAUNTED?
Founded by Puritans in 1630, Boston was initially named "Trimontaine" after three mountains that were visible at the time; however, it was changed to Boston when the founders decided it was an easier name to say. John Winthrop, who was the first governor, pushed Puritanism and education, which still permeates Boston's culture today. During the 1700s, Bostonians showed their rebellious side resisting England's control over the colonies. In 1765 Patriotic mobs started assaulting English officials after "The Stamp Act" was passed requiring direct tax and revenue stamps. This prompted the Revolution, and England's retaliation resulted in the notorious Boston Massacre.
In a time of mob rule and anarchy, with fury to defy British governance, an entire shipment of tea was destroyed, marking the Boston Tea party. Futile attempts to resolve the compensation for the tea the British demanded made way to the Revolutionary War.
From that point, notable events include The Great Fire of Boston in 1872, when 776 buildings and 33 lives were lost. The 20th century brought the performing arts, high-rise buildings, and the statue of Paul Revere. A historic icon but a sad reminder of Boston's torrid past.
