Boston Massacre Mural

This image was created by Linda Abrams.

This image is a mural of the Boston Massacre. It is on an old fence and the painting is fading away. In this image there are five colonists who have been shot. These men are representing the five men that were killed in the Boston Massacre. Among these death is the killing of Crispus Attucks. There are also two British soldiers that are seen on the other side. One of them has a gun, and he is the only person with a weapon. Also, there is a man pointing at the colonist who is probably Captain Thomas Preston. The five colonists look hopeless and can’t be helped. It can be concluded that the artist of this mural is pro-colonist because it shows that the un-armed colonists were killed by the British. It implies that a great injustice was suffered.
