AAA Editor Notes

Park Street Church, 1 Park St., was built in 1809 and was the scene of abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison's first antislavery address in 1829. On July 4, 1831, the patriotic song &#8220;My Country, 'Tis of Thee,&#8221; also known as &#8220;America,&#8221; written by Samuel Francis Smith, made its debut at the church. The steepled red brick building is one of the stops on the Freedom Trail.</br>
