Boston Massacre

All about the American Revolution

I am going to tell you all about the Boston Massacre.But wait a second........................................................First I have tell you the things leading up to the Boston Massacre. first in 1765 it was the Stamp Act. The tax on newspaper and magazines were ridiculously expensive and witch made the colinists very angry. .......wich made the sons of liberty protest.

Next in 1766 was the Townshed Revenue act .They taxed on paint , glass , paper , lead , and tea,then colinists started to chant "NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION". .........finally 1770 Boston Massacre.Some colinests started to through snow balls at a British Gaurd.

All about the Boston Massacre

Not the approriate fight to win

A british soldier on a cold winter day saw colonist and the colonist started to throw snowballs/ice at the british soldier. Then a whole group started to fire their guns, but...a colonist heard someone yell fire!, and so he fired his gun to many times and he killed five people and injuried nine people. Four thousand soldier troops got sent to Boston Massachusetts.

The word "massacre" was in exaggeration because Samuel Adams was chantting "It's a massacre, it's a massacre". But only five people were killed and nine were injuried.

The fight starts NOW!

It was a cold winter night every one was ready to fire,in front of the customs.My hands where throbing and very cold."I thought i herd my captin yell fire,"I was not very sure". I listened again. "FIRE! BOOM!" I shot my gun going ninety-three miles per hour. 'That must have killed him.' I thought. I looked. "It was an accident!" I hollered. Samual Adams chanted, "It's a massacre!" It all happened when a British gaurd named 'Huge White' was arguing with one of us, a colonist, Edward Garrick. I was standing there with my tuckers on, very sadly.

the tragedy in front of the customs house

The boston massacre was an important event leading up to the american revolution. People died for no reason, Sam Adams got everyone riled up for no reason and it was the first time the british got punished.

One reason the boston massacre was important event leading up to the american revolution is that people died for no reason. For example, someone yelled fire, a colonist threw a snowball and a colonist threw an iceball.

Another reason why the boston massacre was an important event leading up to the american revolution is that Sam Adams got people riled up for no reason. For example, he called it a massacre when it wasnt, someone yelled fire and everything got out of hand and it had turned into a riot.

Although the boston massacre was an important event leading up to the american revolution. Five people died for no reason, and because Sam Adams got people riled up. The boston massacre was an important event leading up to the american revolution is especially important because it was the first time the british got punished. For example, the british had to get their thumbs branded for taking five peoples lives, they had to also spend their time in jail and made a deal so they would not be executed.

The boston massacre was an important event leading up to the american revolution because people died for no reason, Sam Adams got everyone riled up for no reason and also it was the first time the british got punished.

The three reasons to support my conclusion is evidence 1-2-3. The tradegy in front of the customs house.
