The signal from the steeple of Boston's oldest church triggered the War for Independence that led to the birth of America. On that fateful night in 1775, the two lanterns in the steeple told Paul Revere that the British were approaching by boat, not on foot.

There are several old churches in Boston. The early settlers were pretty religious and the architecture of these old churches is amazing.
