Thank you so much for your excellent presentation to Wellesley Weston Lifetime Learning today.  As predicted, it was a grand start for our spring semester.

I heard so many enthusiastic comments!  You've certainly set the bar for the rest of our classes.

Boston Massacre 246 Years Old March 5, 1770 - 2016 and Boston Bronze and Stone Spring Talk Schedule 2016

Boston Massacre Remembered after 246 years.

Robert Kraus Boston Massacre Monument

Boston Common Boston Bronze and Stone Speak o Us

Based on Paul Reveres' Lithograph "The Boston Massacre"1770

Boston Massacre Monument 1888
Boston Common /Lafayette Mall Tremont Street Robert Kraus (1850-1902), Sculptor Bronze / Stone

Freedom is symbolically victorious, cast in this bronze sculpture by Kraus.
This very dramatic Freedom, depicted with the flag, a broken chain, an American eagle, and a trod-upon British crown, are positioned before a column with the names of the five Bostonians killed by British soldiers in the 1770 encounter. The high relief bronze plaque below depicting the massacre features an extended hand which visitors love to shake, keeping it polished. Crispus Attucks, famed as the first black to give his life for this nation, lies in the foreground. His shoe also protrudes from the relief and visitors keep that polished as well.
