The Boston Massacre: The Colonists were mad at the King and Parliament because of the Quartering Act and French and Indian War...
Hey Lobster Backs! We are sick of you staying with us, taking our jobs and being obnoxious!
Uh oh... HELP!
The colonists begin throwing snowballs, ice, rocks and sticks at soldiers. The soldiers captain said to "HOLD YOUR FIRE!" However, there was a terrible misunderstanding...
LOBSTERBACKS... Let's throw rocks, sticks and snowballs at them!
I think he said FIRE!
HOLD YOUR FIRE!
Five Colonists were laid dead or dying, including Crispus Attucks (an African American Sailor) during the Boston Massacre... 6 more were injured. This lead to constant fighting between the soldiers and colonists!
