The Boston Massacre

The Dark Death

A former slave named Crispus Attucks was first killed when 8 Brittish soldiers were out on the streets late at night trying to calm down an angry mob of colonists. The colonists were mad because of the Brittish Parilament's laws that put higher taxes on goods.

The Great John Adams

John Adams, one of Boston's greatest attorneys at that time, defended the 8 British soldiers that were involved in the altercation. He did this despite his opposition to British subjects and authorities.

The Boston Tea Party

Due to this new law that made tax higher, colonists were getting angry that they put taxes on tea, so the Sons of Liberty dressed up as Mohawk Native Americans and threw 300 chests full of tea overboard.
