This Fourth of July, care to take a guess at which U.S. city is the most patriotic?

You might guess Boston, with its world-famous Boston Pops concert and impressive fireworks show.

Or maybe New York, with the spectacular Macy’s fireworks display over the Hudson River.

Or how about San Diego, with its large military presence and beautiful miles of beaches, perfect for a Fourth of July barbeque?

They’re all good guesses.  But they’re all wrong. (And so are these 10 places where history comes to life.)
