On March 5, 1770, a deadly riot occurred on King Street in Boston. A distinguished panel of scholars discussed what we can learn about some of the participants, witnesses, and one who memorialized the event.
The first speaker, Katie Turner Getty, focused on two women who witnessed the deadly interactions between colonists and British soldiers; J. L. Bell discussed Crispus Attucks, a man of mixed race killed at the riot, and how he has been remembered at different points in history; and Christian Di Spigna revealed new discoveries about Dr. Joseph Warren and his pivotal role in the Massacre’s aftermath and its enduring legacy.
