  • British Soldier Goldfinch hasn't paid his bill to the wigmaker!
  • Hit the Brit! We hate you!
  • You stupid idiots! Stop throwing things at me!
  • The Boston Massacre all started at the Boston Custom House in 1770, where Edward Garrish (colonist) was getting in an argument with the British Private Hugh White about another soldier not paying their bill on something.
  • You all are going to pay for this! Soldiers! Come over here!
  • During the argument, White struck Garrish on the head, leading other colonists to the scene. Since the colonists were on edge and very angry because of the Quartering Act and British taxing them without representation, a large crowd formed and started attacking the soldier by throwing things at him.
  • Fire!!!
  • Hundreds of colonists were surrounding White, throwing snowballs and other items at him.
  • The situation was getting too crazy for just White, so he called in his other British troops to help him.
  • The colonists watched in horror as the soldiers shot at the crowd, killing 5 people.
  • Crispus Attucks, a runaway enslaved African american and sailor was one of those five. he was known as the first person to lose his life in the fight for American Independence.
