The Boston Massacre: A Family History



A dramatic untold ‘people’s history’ of the storied event that helped trigger the American Revolution.

We see these families jostling with Bostonians for living space, finding common cause in the search for a lost child, trading barbs and and sharing baptisms. Becoming, in other words, neighbors. When soldiers shot unarmed citizens in the street, it was these intensely human, now broken bonds that fueled what quickly became a bitterly fought American Revolution.
