Boston (pronounced /ˈbɒstən/ or locally /ˈbɔstən/ ( listen)) is the capital of Massachusetts and its largest city, and is one of the oldest cities in the United States.

Several early battles of the American Revolution, such as the Battle of Bunker Hill and the Siege of Boston, occurred within the city and surrounding areas. Through land reclamation and municipal annexation, Boston has expanded beyond the peninsula. After American independence was attained Boston became a major shipping port and manufacturing center, and its rich history helps attract many tourists, with Faneuil Hall alone attracting over 20 million every year. The city was the site of several firsts, including United State's first public school, Boston Latin School (1635), and the first subway system in the United States (1897).
