520 |a"On March 5,1770, after being harassed for two years during their occupation of Boston, British soldiers finally lost control, firing into a mob of rioting Americans, killing several of them." The aftermath of this "massacre" led to what became the American Revolution. This book gathers together the most primary documents pertaining to the incident. Included are newspaper stories, the official transcript of the trial, letters, and maps of the area.--[book cover].
