This is ridiculous the way they are taxing us is out of hand. We need to handle this.
The Boston Massacre
I sure hope they know what they're doing, wouldn't want this to get out of hand.
The Patriots rallied and eventually became violent. When one fight was getting broken up a young boy was shot and killed.
No Taxation Without Representation!
Why is this our fault? None of this would happen if they'd listen.
We need to get this situation under control or else it will only get worse.
The death of the young boy caused them to become even angrier and the riots proceeded to just become worse.
I can't believe he's gone he was only a boy.
On March 5, 1770, it hit a new high when the rioters threw snowballs and rocks at the soldiers. This resulted in the soldiers firing and resulted in 5 deaths.
With 6 people injured and 5 dead tensions where high. No one knew how the first shot was really fired even though there where many stories. This event would lead to many more and would one day become one of the most famous events in history.
