Colonists gather in front of British soldiers outside their quarters, hurling snowball and insults at the men. In the confusion the soldiers, without a fire command, shoot at the colonists killing five people including Crispus Attucks, one of the first African-Americans and colonist to die in the revolution.
Colonists, in an act of protest, dumped thousands of pounds of tea into the Boston harbor in an act of defiance against the tax on tea.

Colonists reach a peak of rage and declare war on Britain
