On March 5, 1770, the tension from the British military’s occupation of Boston escalated into the event now referred to as the Boston Massacre. There was an extremely heavy military presence in downtown Boston to maintain control over civilians. On this evening, British soldiers shot and killed civilians while under attack by the mob. The event was engraved into history by Paul Revere and is considered one of the most important events that turned colonials against King George III and the British Parliament.
