"A dramatic untold 'people's history' of the storied event that helped trigger the American Revolution"--,Provided by publisher.
Description
"The story of the Boston Massacre--when on a late winter evening in 1770, British soldiers shot five local men to death--is familiar to generations. But the history of the event has always obscured a fascinating truth: the Massacre arose from conflicts that were as personal as they were political. Historian Serena Zabin weaves colorful stories from original sources, following British troops as they are dispatched from Ireland to Boston in 1768 to subdue the increasingly rebellious colonists. She reveals a forgotten world hidden in plain sight: the many regimental wives and children who accompanied the troops. We see these families jostling with Bostonians for living space, finding common cause in the search for a lost child, trading barbs, and and sharing baptisms--becoming, in other words, neighbors. When soldiers shot unarmed citizens in the street, it was such intensely human, now broken bonds that fueled what quickly became a bitterly fought American Revolution." --,Jacket.
