The Boston Massacre (1770)

No one really knows what happened during the Boston Massacre. There are two very different sides of the story. The colonists story is that the British soldiers just fired at them. They didn't do anything wrong the soldiers just shot at them killing five of the colonists. The British has a whole other story, they say that the colonists were misbehaving, throwing rocks, and calling them names, so they fired at that crowd which resulted in five men being killed.
