The Boy Scouts of Troop 140 Oakville hiked the Freedom Trail and toured several sites in Boston on Columbus Day weekend. The scouts camped at the New England Base Camp in the Milton, outside of Boston. The Scouts made their way past the State House, the Old Burying Grounds, Kings Chapel, Ben Franklin’s statue, the Boston Latin school, Old South Meeting House and the Old State House. The objective in hiking the five mile Freedom Trail was to learn about the historic significance of Boston and its role in American history. Shown is the troop posing with the 6th Middlesex Regiment in front of the statue of Paul Revere. Please see Community News for the full story.
