I want those on my tours to imagine what it was like to live in that time as I take them through it. By presenting the inside stories you will have history presented to you with a depth you have not experienced before.
On the Civil War, Revolution and Kennedy tour you will learn much more than the facts of history. You will be brought back to a time of great battles over many of the issues we still face today.
You will understand the passions that lead to the Civl War and the abolition of slavery and the unique role the City of Boston played in history. The tour of the revolution will tell the often untold story of the crucial role of Boston's street gangs and how the hero's of the Revolution worked to organize them toward rebellion. On the Kennedy and the family story will he told along with issues of health care, immigration and political battles. At Harvard I walk you through Harvard's long journey from an elitist school for Protestant men to one of the countries most diverse universities. .
A Recent Review of this guide
This was a thorough tour covering Harvard Yard but also American history. Ted wove the history of Harvard University from the early colonists to modern day. He took into account what we had heard on our walks along The Freedom Trail in Boston to add more depth to a modern understanding of not only one university but to a country as a whole. An interesting presentation of a small tract of land which has had an impact on the country and the world. Highly recommended whether you're a Harvard fan or not.
