Raw, Unfiltered and Real -- Accurate Historical Walking Tours

CLOSED FOR THE 2020 SEASON Due to COVID

Thank you for visiting our Walking Tour website!.   Lessons on Liberty is CLOSED for the 2020, 2021 (as of May1, 2021) season due to the recent Pandemic. We do hope to reopen as soon as it is responsible to do so.

Everyone PLEASE SOCIAL DISTANCE and WEAR a MASK!  And get the SHOT! Our entire tourism industry has been devastated by the inability of the USA  to get control of, and contain the spread of Covid.  We are counting on YOU to help bring us back by wearing a mask and social distancing.  WEARING A MASK isn’t about YOU its about your community and keeping your friends and loved ones safe. Thank you.

GET THE SHOT…why, George Washington did it!  Yes, the leader our Continental Army who brought victory to the revolution and became our first President had his troops (our army) inoculated for Small Pox and amazingly deadly, and disfiguring disease which was highly contagious. In 1776 when the British Army evacuated the City of Boston, Boston was suffering from a raging epidemic of Small Pox, Washington sent 1000 men from our Army who had been inoculated or were immune due to having already contracted the disease (and lived!) into the town to prevent further spreading and to help the inhabitants of our besieged “city on a hill”.  If it’s good enough for George Washington, General of our Army, Commander in Chief of our Country …its should be good enough for you!

GET THE SHOT!
