In the United States Uoston, New York. Phila delphia and many other places In the East and Southeast are rich in memories of the War of the Revolution and of the events leading up to and succeeding it. Boston, more than any other place perhaps. Is deserving of the title "the Cra dle of American Liberty." Kaneull hall, Old South church, Christ church, or Old North church, from whose belfry the signal was Hashed which started Paul Revere on his famous ride and Hunker Hill are only a few of the historic landmarks which make Roston famous in Revo lutionary history. The famous "Boston Tea Par ty" was the first protest of the Indignant colonists against the oppressive rule of the mother coun try This event occurred In Boston harbor in Dc ceraber, 1773. In order to compel Great Britain to be just toward the American colonists In the matter of taxation, merchants oi this country bad agreed not to import anything while such oppressive laws existed The British parliament declared their right to tax the colonists without their consent; the latter declared that "taxation without representation Is tyranny." The quarrel grew hotter and hotter: some of the contested duties were removed under pressure, but, by 1773. several articles, among them tea. were still burdened by heavy taxes The colonists finally refused lo allow any cargo of tea even to be landed at some of the ports. Vessels were Im mediately sent back with their cargoes un touched In December. 1773, three British ships landed at Boston and the royal governor at tempted to have their cargoes landed In defiance of the popular will The "Boston Tea Party" was the result. This occurrence the inscription on the tablet Itseir sufficiently explains. "Here formerly stood (Irifnns Wharf, at which lay moored on Dec. H. 1775. three British ships with cargoes of ta. To defeat King George's trivial but .tyrannical tax of three pence a pound, about ninety citizens of Boston, partly disguised as Indians, boarded the ships, threw the cargoes, three hundred and forty-two chests In all. Into the sea, and mad the world ring with the pa triotic exploit of the BOSTON TEA PA.RTT. "No! ne'er was mingled such a draught In palace, nail, or arbor. As freemeu brewed and tyrants quaffed That night In Boston harbor." A large building on the corner of Pearl street and Atlantic avenue, devoted to commercial pur poses, now mark the alte of OriflWs wharf where this event occurred. The first armed resistance to Great Britain took place at Ra! em Bridge, Mas. In February. 1771, General Gage of the British army heard that some cannon and munitions of war had been placed In Salem by the colonist, o he sent Colonel Leslie in a vessel from Castle Wll Ham to seise them. They landed st Marblehead, marched Into Salem, and not finding what they sought, moved toward Danvers Part way be tween the two towns at a small drawbridge, which is now marked by the tablet shown lii the Illustration, they found a la. ge number ol people assembled, and on the opposite side 40 militia under Timothy Pickering. The draw bridge was up and Pickering refused to let It down. I., -lit- tried to ferry his troops over In a gondola near by, whereupon the colorista prompt ly scuttled the craft. The British troops event ually returned to their vessel, but without the cannon. The first real battle of the Revolution was fought at Islington, Mass. In the spring of 177S General Gage was informed that the colonists hsd deposited a large quantity of munitions of war at Concord, a village some 16 miles outside of Boston, and he planned a secret expedition to seise them. The alert and wary colonists heard of his plsn. however, and through the Immortal ride of Paul Revere, the whole countryside was alarmed When. Major Pltcalrn, with some 80ft men (the advance guard of the British, arrived at Lexington on their way to Concord, they were met there on the village green by about seventy determined men under Capt. Jonas Parker. The British ordered them to disperse, and when thev refused to do so, fired upon them, killing eight and wounding a number of others. This began the Revolutionary war. It was at Cambridge, Mass., that the army of the colonists was gathered for the march against the British at Bunker Hill. The city of Cambridge, one of the county seats of Middlesex county. Massachusetts. Is separated from the greater city or Boston by the Charlen river. It Is chiefly noted for three things: Ah the seat of Harvard university, a the place where Washington took command of the Conti nental army on July 2, 1776, which wa only a short distance from the spot shown In the illus tration, and for the occurrence marked and de scribed by the tablet alio. The building In the background Is the Law library of Harvard uni versity. The battlefield of Bunker HUI at Charieetown. now part of the city of Boston, I marked by an Imposing monument, erected on a commanding site on the summit of Breed's Hill. The cornerstone of this huge granite obelisk waa laid on June 17. 1825 the fiftieth anniver sary of the battle. Lafayette waa at this time on a visit to America, and he was present at the ceremony; Daniel Webster delivered an oration. The monument stands on Bread's Hill, near the center of the ground Included in the old breast work. It I built of Qulncy granite, and 1 231 feet In height, rt Is SO feat square at the base and 16 feet square at the spring of the apex. The top may be reached by a flight of 286 stone steps There I a room la Its top with four Iron shuttered windows. The monument was not com pleted until 1848, when It waa dedicated In the presence of President Tyler and his cabinet The general impression Is that this engagement of the Revolution was rought on Runker Hill, sc It figures in history as the "Battle of Bunkei Hill." In reality It waa fought on Breed's Hill some distance from the former. The "Minute Men" were so called because ol their ability to assemble upon a minute's notice In April, 1775. after having dispersed the 70 colo nists under Captain Parker who resisted them at Lexington, about tslx miles away, Major Pltcairn pressed forward toward Concord. By this tlmt the whole country was aroused, and the militia flocked toward Concord from every direction The Middlesex farmers, armed with every con celvable weapon, prepared to defend their hornet and their rights. The battle of Concord started at North Bridge, near Concord (the first vollej was fired by the British) The spot Is marked by the famous statue of a typical "Minute Man." So Incensed were the colonists that the whol 800 British would have been destroyed had the not been re-enforced by more troops from Lex Ington. They retreated I.' Lexington, and then after a short rest, the whole body, 1.800 strong started their march of retreat to Charieetown During the whole of their ten-mile march, the) were terribly assailed by the Infuriated colonists They finally reached their destination and un der the guns of the British war vessels spenl the night at Charlestown, crossing over to Boa ton next morning. During this affair the British lost 273 men; the colonists lost 103. During the war or 1812 Sir Isaac Brock, major general or the Canadian torce, personalty led his troops In the battle or Queenston, wher he was killed on October IS. 181 1. The British government caused a fine monument to be erect' ed to his memory in St Paul's cathedral. London In 1816 the Canadians struck a medal to hit memory, and on the heights or Queenston bullí a beautirul Tuscan column, over 130 leet It height, in the base of which a tomb was formed snd in which the general's remains now repose The small monument here shown marks the spot where be was killed. 1 A VAIN HOPE.
