In light of our recent trip, we've got a few Boston trivia questions for you history buffs out there...

but first I thought I'd share a few of my favorite photos. Don't know why, but I'm in LOVE with all the architectural details you can find just about anywhere in Boston--

on railings...

on gates...

on entryways...

So classic. I love it!

And since this post can't get any more random, how about some flowers from the Boston Public Garden? :) Okay, so here's your 2 trivia questions--

1. What (very bloody) battle occurred at this site and who won? AND...

2. What historical event happened on this balcony? And what event continues to happen each year?

No cheating! Let's hear your guesses & we'll give the answers soon enough! More Caroline pics on the way-- we promise!

  1. These are I get time to study?

  2. battle of Bunker Hill. Rebels won
    Read Declaration of Independence at Fanuell (sp?) Ha

  3. I think the British actually won the battle, although we all know who won the war. It was still supposedly a significant loss for the British, though.

  4. Question #1: My Dad is right- it's the battle of Bunker Hill. But Callie is correct-- the British actually won the battle, but it was such a motivator for the Rebels.

    #2: Dad got it 1/2 way right!-- On that balcony is where the Declaration of Independence was read for the first time upon drafting it, and it is still read every July 4 on that balcony! It wasn't at Fanuel Hall, though-- I forget the name of the building-- it's only a block away from Fanuel Hall & it's some kind of State building.

    So congrats to Dad & Callie!
