The day began like any other day. People navigating the snow-filled streets going about their daily business buying and selling goods, doing working, discussing politics, the future, and the presence of an unwanted military regime.
But as late afternoon approached, a Private standing watch over the governmental seat, found himself being surrounded by a group of about 100 insurgents. Realizing he needed assistance, the Private called for and received assistance from nine other Soldiers being led by their Captain. Yet, the reinforcements did not phase the group of insurgents as they continued harassing and insulting the soldiers. Then, using the only weapons immediately at hand, the insurgents fashioned balls from the snow and began throwing them at the symbols of an unwanted military evasion of a foreign government.
Suddenly someone - no one knows who - yelled FIRE! Shots rang out hitting 11 insurgents, of which 3 died at the site and 2 others later.
This insurgent activity, more commonly known as the Boston Massacre, took place on March 5, 1770. It is said that the Boston Massacre served as a galvanizing agent for the colonies to seek independence from Britain. The first to die is known the first hero of the American Revolution.
Obliged to you for hearing me, and now old Sojourner('s Place) ain't got nothing more to say. ~~SjP
