We don't want you here in Boston!
Oh no! We're all doomed!
When Hugh White and his fellow soldiers were surrounded by angry colonists and protesters...
the British soldiers panicked, and they shot their guns into the crowd killing five people. This event was known as the Boston Massacre.
The soldiers were put on trial for murder, but they were defended in court by John Adams, a cousin of Samuel Adams, and like Samuel he didn't like having British soldiers in Boston. Even though he didn't like the British soldiers, he thought the British deserved a fair trial, so they were not guilty.
