3. Listen to a reading of the Declaration of Independence from the balcony of the Old State House in Boston just as it was read to the citizens of Boston on July 18, 1776.
4. Tune into the Old North Church’s new web series “99% Sure” which explores the history, people, and events that made Old North a legendary historic site
5. Join the virtual edition of the popular Footloose on the Freedom Trail Tour.
