The Boston Massacre became infamous throughout the American Colonies in a matter of weeks. Patriot leaders immediately circulated the news with heavy doses of propaganda.  So what really happened on March 5, 1770?  What did it mean to colonists who gathered at Old South Meeting House for memorial services, or who read an account in their newspaper in Pennsylvania or Georgia?  Historian and Old South Meeting House Educator Tegan Kehoe will walk you through the facts and fictions of Paul Revere’s famous print and several other contemporary depictions of the “bloody massacre on King Street.”
