  1. The Boston massacre was a shooting that happened onMarch 5,1770. The colonists we’re angry at British soldiers so they started to throw things at them. A colonist knockout a British soldier, so in panic they started shooting. Several colonists were killed when they started shooting. This led up to the Boston Tea Party later.
