American Revolution: March Massacre

March 5th, 1770.  A war shall begin this evening.  At first it is silent.  A british sentry is harassed.  He walks off, but returns later with friends.  Then the battle begins.  Villagers start tossing snowballs at the sentry and his companions.  A mob forms, and so forth the Revolutionary War begins.  In the midst of the battle, 5 men are killed.  Here is Henry Pelham’s depiction of the events.  It was engraved by Paul Revere.

 

To war!

To war!

 With that, a war begins.  Next time, the Minutemen come running after the Shot Heard Round The World.
