The Boston Massacreby Michael Burgan, Keith Williams, Bob Wiacek, Charles Barnett III
Trouble was brewing in Boston in 1770. American colonists believed they had been treated unfairly for years by lawmakers in Great Britain. People living in Boston raised their voices in protest. British troops soon arrived in Boston to keep the peace, but it was only a matter of time before the soldiers and the colonists clashed. The bloodshed from the meeting of the two sides would be called the Boston Massacre.
