Colonists start throwing sticks and snowballs, and it only gets worse from there.
On March 5th, 1770, there was a small argument between British Private Hugh White and some other colonists. The argument soon escalated to colonists throwing things at the soldiers out of anger.
The British feel threatened, and without order, shoot at the angry mob. 5 colonists are dead, and 3 injured after this massacre.
After this Boston Massacre, all of Boston was in crisis. A few months later in October, followed The Boston Massacre Trials. There were two; one for Captain Preston, and one for the soldiers.
Both trials that underwent had two different stories. Captain Preston said something; but the soldiers said something different. However, they were both innocent.
- and that's how it happened.
Paul Revere, a patriot, produced a drawing; or an engraving of the Boston Massacre. This was soon used as propaganda to demand the British soldiers to be sent away from Boston.
After all that had happened before, during, and after the Boston Massacre helped unite the colonies against Britain.
