Reviews - What do customers think about The Boston Massacre (New England Remembers)?

Robert Allison Pleases Again  Apr 28, 2007
New England Remembers Series Editor Robert J. Allison has taken on in extremely few pages an integral moment in both Boston and American history in his new book, The Boston Massacre. Combining his novelesque readability, biting dry wit, and impeccable research abilities, Allison succeeds in a mere 70+ pages where many (with the exception, perhaps of Zobel) have failed, in succinctly encapsulating not only "the horrid, bloody massacre" itself, but the political and social ramifications of the event in the following years both in Tory and Sons of Liberty circles.

The exciting tale of the massacre and its aftermath is sprinkled with interesting facts surrounding the event as well, including the prominence of Crispus Attucks in the riot, Governor Hutchinson's and Peter Oliver's honest attempts at seeing justice served, wax papered propagandistic messages illuminated in Paul Revere's North Square windows, and the celebration of March 5, not July 4, as a day to celebrate our break from England in the early days of the Republic.

The Boston Massacre is an excellent read for novices and professional historians alike. The only dangers in reading it are that you might actually start looking at the Patriots as radical, and you might feel just a touch of sympathy for the British.
