In fact, the soldiers were not punished. They were held for trial, but patriot John Adams agreed to defend them, in order to ensure a fair trial (and not alienate moderate…s from the Patriot cause), and did so successfully. Two of the British soldiers were punished for manslaughter by having an "m" branded on their thumbs. This was considered a light punishment at that time, but was to ensure they could not escape harsher punishment for manslaughter in any subsequent trial.
They were British soldiers
6 soldiers and 1 leader. IMPROVE: The picture with 7 soldier was made by Paul Revere, and he made many inaccuracies in the picture on purpose because he wanted it to look li…ke the British were bad people. On that night, many colonists were drinking at the tavern so they were drunk. Some even had weapons such as knifes, bats, clubs, and swords. The picture shows the colonists bleeding in the street and vulnerable to attack. The soldiers were also not in a straight attack formation, they were everywhere. Paul Revere started the Revolutionary War. IMPROVE: The picture that Paul Revere made was all propaganda. It showed the British firing into a crowd of unarmed spectators, when in fact the mob had stones, ice chunks, and clubs meant for beating out rope as weapons. Paul Revere only created the picture to convince people that the British were bad people and would kill innocent people.
A british soldier did not die. A lot of people think that colonist were defenless but the truth is that the colnist had these big sticks and would hit the soldiers with them…. someone in the crowd yelled fire u ***** and the soldiers go on the command of fire so they heard fire and BAM but really the soldiers were innocent, its the colonist that wern't
it was the minutemen if im wrong ask ur social studies teacher
It was John Adams!
John Adams. Yes, thee John Adams: second president of the United States.
The soldiers were in Boston because of the Quartering Act which states that British soldiers will stay in colonists house. The colonists must give the soldiers food, clothes, …materials, a bed, a room, and other things. This enraged the colonists. The soldiers would give in return protection from other countries or the Indians from the French and Indian War.
a angry mob of boctonians
