Boston MassacreMarch 5,1770On Devonshire and State street a small riot of colonists throwing sticks and stones at British soldiers at guard. The British had specific instructions not to harm the colonists. Nobody know for sure who but, somebody fired the first shot and then the soliers started fireing on the colonists. Crispus Atticus was the first to die out of five people total. The patriots made this look like that the British fired on poor innocent colonists.The patiriots used this event to encourage more colonists ot become patiriots and want independence.

It was to final attemp to bring peace between the British and the colonists. The petition would afirm American loyalty and leave the King at his subjects defense. The colonists thought that there was no hope in joining the British again after the Kings reaction to the pention.
