Boston Massacre -- Boston Tea Party.
Abstract:
The Boston Massacre: March 5th, 1770. Tensions are mounting on King Street at the Custom House. New taxes have been imposed by British Parliament on the colonies. Governor Hutchinson, John Adams and Sam Adams discuss their rationale for rioting. Ultimately the rioting escalates leaving many people dead, including Crispus Attucks.

The Boston Tea Party: December 16th, 1773. Under the new tax act imposed by the British, three ship boats loaded with tea are docked at Griffin's Wharf in Boston, including one that is owned by merchant Francis Rotch. As Rotch debates with John Hancock and Sam Adams, he must conside whether he will risk ruining his ship by departing the port with the tea onboard or risk betraying his country and his countrymen by unloading the tea.
