Causes of the event

One night in 1770 Boston, angry colonist gathered up in front of British troops, and taunted them by ranting on them and throwing sticks and snowballs. This ranting was because of the taxes put on the colonists and the way they were treated. The rioting happened on King's Street, which would later be named State's Street

The Massacre Occurs

The captain of these troops was Captain Thomas Francis. While the colonist were screaming,"Fire and be damned!", Captain Thomas ordered his troops not to fire but one of the troops did not here his command and shot his rifle. When he did so, it caused a chain reaction, and all of the troops fired their weapons, which made the colonists even more angrier.
