Stories about John Adams

Boston Massacre

  • Boston, MA

The Boston Massacre consisted of a group of soldiers being charged for firing on a crowd of civilians.  The soldiers, being very unpopular and struggling to find someone to represent them in the trial, were eventually represented by John Adams.

The work of John Adams on behalf of the soldiers resulted in the acquittal of six of the soldiers, while two who fired directly into the crowd were convicted of manslaughter (originally being charged with murder).
