kept the money he made.

TENSIONS W/ ENGLAND MOUNT .. During those twenty years, the American colonies were in
conflict with England.

KING GEORGE III SENDS 2 REGIMENTS IN 1769 .. The colonies resented the fact that they
had to buy almost everything from England and were unhappy about the lack of free trade. The
most outspoken colony was Massachusetts. British king, George III, sent two regiments into the
Boston Harbor in the fall of 1769.

OCCUPATION INCREASES TENSIONS .. The British occupation resulted in many conflicts with
the citizens of Boston. According to historian John Fiske, "the soldiers did many things that
greatly annoyed the people. They led brawling, riotous lives, and made the quite street hideous
by night with their drunken shouts...On Sundays the soldiers would race horses on the Common,
or would play 'Yankee Doodle' just outside the church-doors during the services."

HIS DINNER WAS INTERRUPTED.. Crispus Attucks was living in Boston during this time. On
March 5, 1770 Crispus was eating dinner when he became aware of a fight between Boston men
and British soldiers. He went to Dock Square to investigate. He picked up a stick and shouted to
the crowd gathered there to follow him to King Street. When they arrived at King Street, Attucks
went to the front of the crowd and struck at one of the British Soldiers.

THE FIRST TO FALL .. The soldier fired and hit Attucks with two musket balls. Four other men
were killed, and six others were wounded. The next day, Attucks' body was taken to Faneuil Hall,
and two days later, all the businesses were closed for his and the other victims' funeral. The
funeral was attended by the largest crowd known to have assembled in North America. Attucks
was buried in the Old Granary Burial Ground. This traumatic event became known as the
"Boston Massacre" and was the first rallying cry to motivate the colonists to declare their
independence in the American Revolution.
