Yes, it was the site of the Fort Dearborn Massacre in the early 19th century, where a monument stands today. More info can be read here: virtualchicagoland.com

I have read that the massacre took place at 16th and Indiana. That's very close I imagine. Stories have it that The soldiers who came to reoccupy the fort four years later found bodies strewn through the dunes. Bones have been reported to be unearthed around there in early street building days.

See the related question link to the right:

Actually I went to the site in October 2005 and the monument is not there now. (I heard later that there are plaques on nearby buildings, but didn't notice on my visit.) Did some research (that hopefully will help correct the reference on the Chicago Historical Society's encyclopedica site) and learned it was moved to the nearby Hillary Rodham Clinton Park on Prairie, then put into storage by the Chicago Park District according to a 1998 newspaper article. I'm checking that out now.

What were the events that linked the Boston massacre at the Boston tea party?

They weren't linked. The only thing is they both happened in Boston and were years apart. The Boston Massacre was spun by Paul Revere in hand bills to create distrust between the colonies and the British. The events we think we know for the massacre and the tea party are NOT what really happened. Watch the history channel program on the Boston Massacre in the series unknown history.
