  The Boston Massacre: Deadly squabble was not quite as the propaganda portrayed it By Brian MacQuarrie Globe Staff, Updated March 4, , p.m. Email to a Friend. Thursday marks the th anniversary of the Boston Massacre, during which five people were killed in a face-off between American colonists and British soldiers. More than two centuries later, there is still a lot of misunderstanding surrounding the incident.

Boston has had its share of bookies and loan sharks, gangsters and wiseguys, hoodlums and hit men. From the Great Brink's Robbery, which was hailed as the crime of the century; to the long-forgotten Cotton Club in Roxbury, where the legendary nightlife kingpin Charlie "King" Solomon was gunned down; to the infamous Blackfriars Massacre, a brutal gangland slaying that left 5/5(2). The Boston Massacre gathers together the most important primary documents pertaining to the incident, along with images, anchored together with a succinct yet thorough introduction, to give students of the Revolutionary period access to the events of the massacre as they unfolded.
