PHOTOS: Kids Make History on the Boston Common
The third annual event brought the public park's history to life for students.
Monday morning The Friends of the Public Garden hosted schoolchildren from across the city at the Boston Common for Making History on the Common. The event brough 7,500 years of Boston history to life. Children saw how the public park was used to raise sheep and cows, they participated in Native American dancing, played games kids would have played three centuries ago, saw weaving demonstrations, were placed in stocks and saw Civil War re-enactments.
