  • " Give some of those cookies!"
  • "The British should leave!"
  • "No more British
  • In 1765, Parliament passed a law saying the colonists were supposed to give the British soldiers food, lodging, and any other thing they wanted without making a fuss.
  • "Hold your fire!"
  • " Lobsterbacks!"
  • This made the colonists very angry with the British soldiers. The Sons of Liberty protested and made fun of them and tormented them while they were  staying at their houses. 
  • A crowd of colonists gathered in the streets shouting to the british telling them they should leave them alone. They called them " Lobsterbacks" and other names.
  • " The British have destroyed us by killing 5 of our men and wounding 6 more!"
  • The british commander was angry, but he wasn't angry enough to tell his soldiers to fire. But one of the soldiers misheard and fired his rifle killing a man!
  • Then everybody panicked, and in the fray the British fired many more shots. On that day, 5 people died and 6 more were wounded
  • Nobody knows how the fight stopped, but we do know that when it stopped, it became the talk of the town for a long time. Samuel Adams, a man who was a leader in helping get rid of the British, made sure that the word was spread out everywhere.
