SHOW NOTES

Episode 14 - The Boston Massacre

In this show I discuss what many consider the "starting point" of the Revolution, that being The Boston Massacre.  Did it happen the way we learned in school?  Who was truly at fault?  What would your verdict be if you were on the jury?

 

After scouring court transcripts, actual documents from the lawyers and notes of the trial, witness statements and about 8 hours of research, I do my best to paint a vivid and accurate picture for you of what truly happened and why.
