On this day, 251 years ago, we would find ourselves in the middle of a trial of 8 British Soldiers on trial for murder over the events that occurred on the night of March 5, 1770, known as the Boston Massacre. During that night, British soldiers fired into a crowd of Bostonians who had gathered on King Street and were threatening a British sentry. The resulting skirmish left 4 Bostonians killed outright and several more wounded, some mortally.
