Contemporary Depiction of the Boston Massacre

This image was created by Oscar De Mejo.

This is an image of the Boston Massacre showing the British soldiers firing at the colonists who are all unarmed. Among the colonists there are even some women that can be seen. They all look like they are trying to talk to the British soldiers about something. The artist of this image also has a pro-Revolutionary view because the British are egaging in a fight with colonists that are not armed with any weapons. Furthermore, they are not trying to fight back. However, it does show that the colonists were not backing down and wanted to be heard by the British.
