Old North Church
The Old North Church, also known as Christ Church, is a historic Episcopal church located in Boston's North End, built in 1723. It gained significant fame for its role in the American Revolution when, on April 18, 1775, two lanterns were hung in its steeple to signal the movements of British troops, as immortalized in Longfellow's poem "Paul Revere's Ride." This event marked the beginning of the Revolutionary War and turned the church into an enduring symbol of American independence. Today, the Old North Church stands as a popular historical site, allowing visitors to experience the atmosphere of colonial America and learn about its pivotal role in shaping the nation's history.
