The course explores Boston from the 1600s to the present. Learn about the Massachusett Indians who lived on the land we now know as Boston before the Puritans arrived. Discover how these settlers created a system of self-government so strong that Boston became the most democratic community on the planet and the birthplace of the Revolutionary War. Trace the city’s role in the American anti-slavery movement and the Civil War. Understand how Boston remains revolutionary to this day, redefining education, the arts and medicine by creating some of the best museums, orchestras, hospitals and schools in the world.
