The Boston Massacre; A Family History
Join the Newport Historical Society for a talk with Professor Serena Zabin, author of The Boston Massacre: A Family History on Thursday, March 12, 2020 at 5:30pm at the Leatherman Program Center, 82 Touro Street, Newport, RI.
Zabin’s The Boston Massacre delivers an indelible new slant on iconic American Revolutionary history. The story of the Boston Massacre—on a late winter evening in 1770, British soldiers shot five local men to death—is familiar to generations. But from the very beginning, many accounts have obscured a fascinating truth: The Massacre arose from conflicts that were as personal as they were political.
