So many wonderful American Revolution projects !!!
On March 5, 1770, The Boston Massacre occurred in front of the building on Devonshire Street.
A commercial break. Because, after all, the point of this page is to say, "Please read my novel!"
It’s such a great opportunity to be able to experience such a great historic place filled with so much meaning, not just for Boston but for our country.

Exploring the actual site of the Boston massacre at the old state house during the @bostonhistoricalsociety
tour as we all had fun playing roles of characters that played significant parts in the events that took place on that night in March 1770.
MP-Tyranny In Democracy
The Kingship of England sought to depose the Founding Fathers from bearing rule over their respective colonies. Ruling from overseas, the revolts were coming to a head as troops were quartered in homes, in armories, and throughout the cities. The Boston Massacre, for instance, showed a disdain for Americans who were at the mercy of the British crown. Their lives were at stake for disobeying. The price of their deaths was invasion from the English who at the word of the Declaration of Independence delivered men to suppress the freedom fighters. God wanted an interdependent nation, one no longer oversaw by a dictator. The tyrant was King George, a personality of eager anger, looking westward with scorn. There could be only a Central Figure of Power (Matthew 9:8): “For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes” (Matthew 7:29). Only One has access to The Eternal Kingdom (Psalm 24:9). When the signatures signed the document, we were already free. Much like the word of our testimonies (Luke 7:4-10). When once we proclaim the truth of The Everlasting Christ, The King of Kings, we are positively made freemen (Psalm 145:3): “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed” (John 8:36)
