    Paul Revere is up in the top center. Samuel Adams is to the right on the path right when you enter the grounds. John Hancock is on the left part of the grounds, 9 o'clock.

    It's not THE Benjamin Franklin, just his relatives. Also, keep a sharp eye out for Sam Adams and the real Paul Revere.

    Notice the large number of crosses, gaudy monuments celebrating wealth, and brave fighters against the capital gains tax and restrictions on corporate involvement in elections! <sarcasm>

    I saw a night time tour here with the guide dressed as a Boston Colonist. I guess it is like a creepy tour at night, that's good if you want to be scared.
