Boston's Quincy Market aglow in colorful holiday lights and Christmas tree with shoppers hustling about trying to finish up on last minute Christmas shopping.
Boston's first public market, Faneuil Hall - adjacent to the site where Quincy Market now stands - was built in 1742, when the colony of Boston was still young. As a wholesale market, the building quickly became a gathering place for America's early citizens. But lots more than shopping took place at this site. It was here that patriots like Sam Adams gathered to thrill the crowds with their anti-England rhetoric, further fueling the spirit of freedom.
