A dramatic untold ';people's history' of the storied event that helped trigger the American Revolution The story of the Boston Massacrewhen on a late winter evening in 1770, British soldiers shot five local men to deathis familiar to generations. But from the very beginning, many accounts have obscured a fascinating truth: the Massacre arose from conflicts that were as personal as they were political. Professor Serena Zabin draws on original sources and lively stories to follow British troops as they are dispatched from Irelandto Boston in 1768 to subdue the increasingly rebellious colonists. And she reveals a forgotten world hidden in plain sight: the manyregimentalwives and children who accompanied these armies. Wesee 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 these intensely human, now broken bonds that fueled what quickly became a bitterly fought American Revolution. Serena Zabin's The Boston Massacre deliversan indelible newslant on iconic American Revolutionary history.
