Angry colonists made snowballs with rocks hidden inside of them and threw them at soldiers. This prompted the soldiers to fire back. This was known was the Boston Massacre of 1770.
Results: - 5 Colonists die. - A cartoon of the Massacre is sent through the colonies about the event. - The Committees of Correspondence is established by Samuel Adams. - The soldiers are Arrested and John Adams defends the soldiers. - This could be considered a "stepping stone" for the revolution.
I think I may have an idea.....
My Majesty, We need to increase our profits, can you do something for us?
British East India Company Tea Only tea available, for £3
Love, where did all the other teas go?
Sons of Liberty are preparing for the Boston Tea Party.
Those British need to learn. We have to force their British East India Company ships not to unload!
I will not dock to unload the tea, just let me and my crew survive!
