波士顿惨案 (Boston Massacre)
1770
35

美国殖民人士与英国之间的紧张关系在1770年初春就已经显得剑拔弩张。在该年35日的午后,一群波士顿青年嘲笑驻守在波士顿海关大楼的英国士兵,并且对其扔掷雪球。一个英国士兵被雪球击中之后,其他士兵变得愤怒不平,虽然他们被禁止开枪,但是他们还是对着人群射击。最后他们一共射杀了四个人,这也是史称的「波士顿惨案」。


Tensions between the American colonists and the British were already running high in the early spring of 1770. Late in the afternoon, on March 5, a crowd of jeering Bostonians slinging snowballs gathered around a small group of British soldiers guarding the Boston Customs House. The soldiers became enraged after one of them had been hit, and they fired into the crowd, even though they were under orders not to fire. Their shots hit and killed four civilians in an event that has come to be known as the Boston Massacre.
