Renowned for its excellence in higher education and rooted in the history of American independence, Boston is the capital of Massachusetts and also its largest city. Originally founded by Puritans in 1630 as the Massachusetts Bay Colony on the Shawmut Peninsula, it was also originally called "Trimountain" for its proximity to three hills. It was later renamed after a city in Lincolnshire, England. Boston is known as the cradle of the American Revolution and was the site of the Boston Massacre in 1770, the Boston Tea Party in 1773, and the first major battle of the revolution — known as the Battle of Bunker Hill — in 1775.
