Occupying Boston:
An Intimate History of the Boston Massacre

The most famous picture from eighteenth-century America is Paul Revere’s striking engraving of the “Bloody Massacre,” when British troops shot into a crowd of Bostonians, killing five. But that picture tells much less than half of the story.  Join Carleton Connects as we learn about Professor of History Serena Zabin's new research on the Boston Massacre.  Using digital mapping and social network software, Zabin’s research shows that soldiers and townspeople were intimately bound together through ties of sex, friendship, and family. Far from being strangers, on the eve of the American Revolution, soldiers and townspeople were neighbors who knew each other all too well.

Date:  Thursday, December 4
11:00 a.m. Central
