|British guards||Bostonian protesters|
The Boston Massacre was an event prior to the American Revolutionary War that occurred in Boston.
On March 5th, 1770, a crowd had gathered around British Army guards at Custom House Tower. After throwing objects at the guards and tempting them to shoot, the British soldiers did; firing into the crowd of Boston civilians, killing 5 and injuring 6 others. People such as Paul Revere and Samuel Adams used the massacre as propaganda to support their pro-revolution cause. Victims of the Boston Massacre are buried at the Old Granary Burying Ground.
The Boston Massacre is mentioned only in Fallout 4.
