You say you want a revolution?

Parker House Hotel, 60 School St. at Tremont

Forget Faneuil Hall or Old North Church. They're ancient history. Modern revolutionaries work at the Parker House. Ho Chi Minh was a busboy; Malcolm X a waiter. Oh, and John Wilkes Booth stayed here a week before he shot Lincoln (his brother, Edwin, a well known Shakespearean actor, was in town to do a play).
