TALE OF A CITY is an animated series that will tell the fascinating story of cities around the planet. Cities to follow will include New York, Seattle, Atlanta, London, Paris, San Francisco, Rome and more...
Maps will morph engaging characters will narrate and history will be revealed.
MEET our animated characters FEATHERBUTT and RAT and watch as the Boston episode is introduced:
Founded on September 17, 1630, the city is named after Boston, England, a town from which several prominent colonists originated. Boston would eventually become the "Cradle of Democracy."
The fire started on Lincoln Street on November 9 and in two days destroyed about 65 acres of the city. 776 buildings were destroyed causing $60 million in damage.
This strange mishap occurred on January 15, 1919. A huge molasses storage tank at the top of a hill exploded. Twenty-one people were killed and 150 injured as hot molasses crushed, asphyxiated, and cooked many of the victims to death.
Boston has had its fair share of tragedy. The Cradle of Liberty proudly regroups and carries on after two terrorist bombs go off during the 2013 Marathon. Boston Strong becomes the mantra to help the city unite and heal.
