  3. "The Siege of Boston (April 19, 1775 – March 17, 1776) was the opening phase of the American Revolutionary War, in which New England militiamen—and then the Continental Army—surrounded the city of Boston, Massachusetts, to prevent movement by the British Army garrisoned within. The Americans, led by George Washington, eventually forced the British to withdraw from the city after an 11-month siege. It was the longest single conflict of the War." ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siege_of_Boston )

    This short video shows how life in the besieged city could have been. Performed by local area re-enactors at the Boston Common on Aug 16, 2008. The wheel fiddle instrument is called a hurdy gurdy. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurdy_gurdy
