The Boston Massacre was an event prior to the American Revolutionary War that occurred in Boston.

Background[edit | edit source]

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.[1]

Appearances[edit | edit source]

The Boston Massacre is mentioned only in Fallout 4.

Many famous Revolutionary War heroes were buried here including: John Hancock, Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, and the victims of the Boston Massacre. In 2031, after the tragic death of Emilia Butler, the city council voted unanimously to have her remains interred here."
