Mob rule over the previous three years had literally scared the British authorities into helplessness or flight back to England. Parliamentary law after law had been undermined by Colonial sedition. Two British regiments, the 14th, and 29th, landed in Boston on October 1, 1768, with 2,000 soldiers and various artillery, horse and support troops. The soldiers expected an active revolution. They initially received the cold shoulder. Our Boston Massacre tour will build on social, religious, military and legal issues that were ignited eighteen months later on March 5, 1770 at the location below.
Our tour will not quite take this long. Standard tours are ninety-minutes but can be very informative in an hour.
