mar 5, 1770 - Boston Massacre March 5, 1770

Description:

The Boston Massacre was an incident that occurred on March 5, 1770, in which British soldiers fired on a colonial mob protesting the occupation of Boston by British troops. The mob began throwing snowballs, clubs, and stones. When one of the soldier’s muskets accidentally went off, the other soldiers all fired as well, killing five men, including Crispus Attucks. In the following trial of the officers, John Adams represented the soldiers, and only two of the six soldiers were found guilty of manslaughter.
