one thing is that he remembered he could as very well get in ALOT of trouble if the patriots won and he did think that it wasn't fair to the British for defending themselves and their was a thing that said you could defend yourself if needed
Tension lead them to non importation agreements
It did not show the event accurately .
It wasn't really a massacre (battle in which many people die) because only 5 people died. It was made a big deal to anger colonists.
the Boston Massacre
it was beautifull
The Boston Massacre took place in Boston, on March 5, 1770. The massacre which was carried out by British army soldiers resulted in 5 people dying and six others being injured.

Many colonists protested, and Britain sent soldiers to control the colonies.BY: Doston
One was run over by the other and the other is in hospital and has admitted to bombing Boston.
The Boston Massacre was not part of a diabolical plan. The soldiers fired in response to the crowd. The crowd gathered as part of a spontaneous protest. It was an Accident of History.
Robert Treat Paine. I am doing the same worksheet!!
A few colonists had been drinking and saw a lone British soldier who was in charge of guarding a building. They started harassing the soldier and were throwing snow at him. More soldiers showed up to help the soldier. Slowly the few drunk colonists were joined by more and more colonists armed with clubs, sticks, and even knives. One of the soldiers was knocked to the ground accidentally firing a shot. Out of panic, the… Read More
It provided fodder for propaganda and helped whip up revolutionary sentiment. The massacre began after a contingent of British troops were pelted with snowballs by a mob of Bostonians. Mind you, these were not your average fluffy snowballs but chunks of ice and rocks covered with snow. Fearing for their lives, the Redcoats opened fire. The troops were later charged and brought to trial. A Boston jury acquitted most of them, and convicted others of… Read More
A group of colonist civilians surrounded nine British soldiers and started thowing things at them. One soldier paniked and shot into the crowd, the rest started shooting as well. After the shooting stopped, five colonists were killed and six were wounded.
Actually, they didn't boycott goods as much as it seems. They did what we would do and that is to look for the cheaper price. One of the goods involved was tea. Many goods the colonist bought were from colonial smugglers because they were cheaper. When the British lowed the price of the tea it made the Dutch tea higher in price so the smugglers were loosing money. Two of the biggest smugglers were Hancock… Read More
No John Adams was born and raised in Braintree, Massachusetts.
Lt. William Callie I think that's the spelling was court marshalled by the US Army as he was the OIC of a group of US Army solgiers who killed a bunch of "civilians" at mei li. As most people now know the war was a confusing one for or US troops as the civilians were our friends in the daylight and at night they sliiped on their black pagamas and became our enemy. Improvement. My… Read More
Well, I don't know specifically what a Clerke 1'st .22 long is worth, but I do know a Clerke 1'st firing a .32S&W goes for anywhere from $70 to $80 depending on condition and I also know that .22 caliber versions of revolvers usually cost a bit less, so I'd venture to say somewhere in the $50 to $65 range.
After the massacre which took place in 1928, the impact of the killings on the aboriginal groups in the area was significant: the killings upset the land holding, religious groups, destabilised land tenure, ceremonial life, exchange networks and religious ceremonies.
General Thomas Gage and Crispus Attucks.
See: Atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
because it wanted to happened
1200 prisoners killed 1200 prisoners killed In Britain the semtpember massacres showed the genral population what really was happening. people who prevoisly supported the French revolutoin believing it was a "gloroius movement for change" began to see the implications and problems with a revolution. People who may once have thought revoltion may be good Britain began not to think so.
The Red Coats (are coming!) The Red Coats (are coming!) The Red Coats (ate coming!)
he was put in trial
"Darn you fire!" Supoosedly that was what he said.
After Boston massacre they told king that colonists want to be free. No taxation without representation they screamedd!!!!! -PK bffl's with Kiki & Gabb =) whoever wrote this above is stupid and wrong. They wanted to be free they were arguing and that is what caused the mob,which caused them to say that.The Revolutionary war is what have been caused and happened after the Boston Massacre.
Yes, Captain Prescott was tried.
they were protesting and angry, i believe... thats why they had the commitee of correspondence
They called the British Redcoats names and provoked them by throwing snowballs (some with sticks in them) and oystershells.
The boston massacre had no leaders. A few kids threw snow balls at a soldier and the soldier called for backup.
The Boston massacre was not actually a massacre. The citizens of Boston taunted the soldiers of Britain and then a shot was fired. No one knows who fired the first shot. But the soldiers shot and had killed five civilians. The first gunshot was also known as "The shot heard around the world".
One person who became famous was Crispus Attucks, a free black man (who seems to have been part black and part Wampanoag Indian); Attucks was the first person killed during the Boston Massacre in 1770. He was among a group of colonists protesting against the British soldiers; by some accounts, the protest turned violent as colonists began throwing objects at the soldiers; other accounts say Attucks was not one of the men who was throwing… Read More
No one famous died, just normal working class people. The following is from wikipedia. Three Americans - ropemaker Samuel Gray, mariner James Caldwell, and a mixed race sailor named Crispus Attucks - died instantly. Samuel Maverick, an apprentice ivory turner of seventeen, was struck by a ricocheting musket ball at the back of the crowd, and died a few hours later, in the early morning of the next day. Irish immigrant Patrick Carr died two… Read More
it took place in Boston
the newspapers made it look like it was all the soldiers fault. Paul Revere drew a picture with the british general behind his soldiers rather than in front because if e was in back it means he was commanding them to fire at the colonists. the colonists provoked the redcoats by yelling at them and throwing stuff at them such as sharp oyster shells, glass, rocks, wood. the soldiers were merely defending themselves. but the… Read More
Paul Revere was the Boston silversmith, smuggler, and political activist who engraved an illustration of the Boston Massacre.
That event was called the Boston Massacre
The boston massacre got so much attention because of the propaganda the Paul revere made-because it was greatly over exaggerated and it proposed that a lot of people died when only five did. Because of this, many of the colonist and or patriots were extremely angry at the British, once again. Thus- this is one of the events leading up to the American revolution.
of course they were angry! thier population was threatend
A cartoon would be poking fun at some aspect about the incident. Paul Revere's picture is a serious piece of propaganda organizing it in a way that looked like it was all British aggression.
all i know abou the Boston Massacre is that there were a group of like crazy people throwing rocks and making fun of the guards( that have like red shirts and black tall furry hats ) and then the guards started shooting at them .
Crispus Attucks was the first to die at the Boston massacre
Samuel Adams put up posters describing the Boston massacre.
Because it was used by newspapers as propaganda on a spin to help increase the revolutionaries in the struggle against Britain.
Some received before the discharge are collectable by the trustee. Whether an inheritance can be included depends on the the type of BK (Federal or State) and the laws that are applicable. If however, the BK has been discharged, no monies are subject to seizure by the truste/court. I'm a little confused by the answer above. There is no such thing as "State bankruptcy," though there are state receiverships which are similar but rare. The… Read More
Originally, Boston was named Tremontaine (three mountains). This was in reference to the three large hills found on the Shawmut Peninsula. It's a good thing the name didn't stick because today only one of the three hills remains (Beacon). The other two were removed to supply fill material for Back Bay. Boston was named after Boston, Lincolnshire, England. Back then many of the town's prominent citizens had emigrated from the English village.
July 18, 1776
In 1776 early in the American Revolution British forces evacuated Boston, Massachusetts, after George Washington placed artillery overlooking the city. It has been a legal holiday in Suffolk County since 1941. Although it is a holiday in Suffolk County only (according to the 1941 ruling), all state employees get the day off with pay! Even those who live and/or work at the other end of Massachusetts.
Historians have debated this, but generally, it is believed Boston was named after the town of Boston in Lincolnshire, England; it is located about 100 miles north of London. Some people have also said that Boston was actually a shortened version of St. Botolph's Town, which is the original name of the town in England.
I grew up in South Boston, in the shadows of Dorchester Heights, and March 17th being St. Patrick's Day, there were many festivites. The day usually stated with a memorial service at the Heights, and tower monument was open to the public. This is about the only "Evacuation Day" ceremony. The rest of the day was celebrated as a South Boston holiday and St Patrick's Day. The movie theater used to have free cartoons all… Read More
There were approximately 500,000 people living in Nanking when the Japanese attacked. Over 300,000 civilians were killed by the Japanese in brutal ways that even the Nazis living in Nanking at the time were horrified. During the Rape of Nanking, Chinese were not the only target; Americans and other nationalities suffered under the Japanese. They Japanese raided Nazi properties, even stomped on their flags, considering that Japan and Germany were allies at that time. They… Read More
Obviously everyone has their own perception of racism, what it constitutes, what is acceptable behavior. Historically, rural areas and states in the South have been stereotyped as having more racist ideologies amongst their populations. Attitudes towards other races, including intermarriage and interracial children are much more open minded than they were even fifty years ago. Along with acceptance and tolerance, there is the downside of slightly growing numbers of interracial crime--although the vast majority of… Read More
It might be the colonists because they were taunting the British, but it also might be the British because they fired into the crowd by the order of Captain Preston.
9:00 PM on March 5, 1770. Hope this helps.
5 were killed
bayonets, repeating, rifles, pistols
by paul rever he took his horse and rode it and told the other colonists
no the Boston tea party did
almost 500,000 people and all of them died,
they were all during king geoege the 3rd's time as king of Enlang.
umm...in my terms in those days they were wicked people to the black race :/ just makes me angry
John Adams defended the British because he was generally a good guy. And when he was asked to he was skeptic at first but decided it was the right thing to do. And he was also ashamed at how the Americans acted during the Boston Massacre because he knew that it wasn't the British' fault it was the Americans. He knew what he had to do was right and he did it justice. It wasn't… Read More
The colonists reacted to the Boston Massacre by forming militias and eventually fighting the British in the American Revolution. It is sometimes said that the Massacre was the start of the war.
The Boston Massacre was a battle between Britain and American colonists.
The Boston massacre took place in 1770. British soldiers killed five men for no good reason, other than the fact that they were protesting the presence of the British soldiers on March 5, 1770.
Because its where people died, the end.
Colonial leaders used news of the killings as propaganda against the British. Samuel Adams put up posters describing the "Boston Massacre" as a slaughter of innocent Americans by bloodthirsty redcoats. An engraving done by Paul Revere showed a British officer giving the order to open fire on an orderly crowd. Revere's powerful image strengthened anti-British feeling.
The Boston Massacre was propaganda used by the colonists against the British. The colonists started realizing that their rights as English citizens were being denied, and they were upset. Captain Preston had told the soldier not to fire, but the soldier did not obey him. The engraving that Paul Revere carved shows a dog just sitting on the street while the Massacre is happening, and the soldiers ignore it. That showed that the soldiers thought… Read More
Crispus Attucks (c. 1723 - March 5, 1770) was one of five people killed in the Boston Massacre. He has been frequently named as the first martyr and is the only Boston Massacre victim whose name is commonly remembered. He is regarded as an important inspirational figure in American history. Referred to as a "mulatto" denotes a person with one white parent and one black parent or a person who has both black ancestry and… Read More
There were 8 people injured in the Boston Massacre.
March 5, 1770
hey made the British look as though they where just shooting down the colonists just because.... Bias: against the British Reason: to try to make the British look bad One side of the story: only the colonist side is shown in the Boston massacre picture
Because the British soldiers hated the colonists' guts.
The Boston Massacre had effects on both sides. The colonists though it was the British's fault while the British thought it was the colonists' fault. The trail did not help at all. The British soldiers that were tried got off with minimum punishment. Only two British soldiers were punished by being branded the letter M, for murderer, on their thumbs. This helped spark the American Revolution due to the reactions of the colonists. The results… Read More
The word Massacre means fight.
ANSWER: The Boston Massacre was a major turning point to war between America and Great Britain. The American Colonists were already unhappy about all the taxes that was placed upon them. But, the Boston Massacre was the beginning of the end for the British. War would come, and Great Britain would hang its head in defeat.
March 5, 1770
paul reverie had an engraving about the Boston massacre. he used propaganda to convince the people that he civilians were defensless. 1. a citizen has his back turned 2. there is a puppy in front of the civilians symbolizing their helplessness. 3. a church behind the battle showing that maybe the soldiers had no regard for religon or church. since they killed people in the presence of a church building. 4. A a building behing… Read More
During the scene, it was not actually snowing, but there was snow from previous nights where there was snow. The snow was used to throw at the soldiers.
Yes. You learn this in the 5th or 7th grade. The people who were protesting were throwing rocks and snowballs at the soldiers, protesting against the tax. The soldiers were supposed to shoot over their heads', but they didn't hear the general's command. So basically, yes, if they didn't throw stuff, they wouldn't be dead.
None, but two of the soldiers were branded on the thumb for manslaughter. They were first time offenders, and given Benefit of Clergy, so they avoided getting hung.
It was the English. The English troops were marching through the town. No one today is quite sure how it really went. The English troops reported that the townspeople were getting very rowdy. The townspeople said that the English troops simply opened fire. Whatever provoked the cause, the British did open fire, and the six fatalities that were caused were never forgiven until the very end of the war.
captain geradine Cornwallis witnissed it
5 people died at the boston massacre
It wasn't. It was an event in Boston where British soldiers fired on colonist. The history channel has a good program on this.
To this date, historians aren't exactly sure. However, there is evidence that can help lead to a theory. It depends on your opinion on the event, how you took in everything that happened, and other factors.
