Join Boston National Historical Park at Fanueil Hall to meet two sisters, entrepreneurs of the 1760s, Elizabeth and Ame Cuming, who came to Boston from Concord to launch a fashionable shop for women. Learn what happens when the Cuming sisters find themselves in the midst of Boston’s politics of rebellion against British authority. As part of a decade-long celebration of the 250th anniversary of the coming of the American Revolution to Boston, step into the very real, very complicated world of choices faced by Elizabeth and Ame Cuming. What would you have done?
