Day Three began with a talk from Frank Cogliano linking our study of the early colonies to the period of the American revolution – an experience of becoming more British, but less English. Cogliano then led us along the Freedom Trail, including stops at the Granary Burial Ground, Faneuil Hall, the Old South Meeting House, and King’s Chapel. The day concluded with a classroom implementation session with Gloria Sesso and a tour of Harvard.
