If you have ever visited Boston , you are familiar with the Freedom Trail, a sidewalk
based guide to history as it happened in the Hub of the Universe.
There is a second and just as compelling Freedom Trail in Boston and it was founded in 2004.
Sox fans freed themselves from the Yankee oppression of Emperor George I and his legions just like their
forefathers broke free of English oppression led by King George III.
The trail is easy enough to pick up even though it is invisible; you will not see it, but it is very much there for you to explore.
Arrive late in the day when the shadows start to reach across the decades and stretch for almost a century. Watch the sun set on
the same ballpark your great grandfather took your grandfather to that you now take his great great grandson to and watch the
current version of what is essentially the “same” team.
Circle the ballpark and walk the Newfound Freedom Trail.
