How absurd! Why would the King send British soldiers to a town with 16,000 colonist
British Soldiers sent to Kings Street in Boston
I refuse to follow the taxation made by the king!
British Soldiers had tried to enforce the taxes on the colonist
YOU MUST! The king has applied these taxes and you must follow them!
NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!
NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!!!
Which then came the slogan "No taxation without representation"
You wouldn't hit me, even if someone told you so. AHAHAHA!
The colonist had teased the British soldiers by hitting them with bats
Someone had shouted "Fire" which made the British soilders fire.
5 Men Killed on March 5, 1770, due to British Soldiers
One of the 5 people who had been shot to death was Crispus Attucks. But the real reason that this was an important event was that it had stagged the Boston Tea Party, as well as one of the reasons that there was an American Revolution.
