Boston (42°21'N 71°03'W) is a major port city of the United States being the capital city of the state of Massachusettes. During the period of the Aubrey-Maturin stories, it had a population of around 30,000. The city lies at the back of a natural, sheltered, deep-water harbor that is formed by a deep indentation of the coastline at the mouth of the Charles River. It was in her shipyards that the famed privateer Acheron was built during the Peace of Amiens (1802-1803).
