Boston Massacre Reenactment

From the Bostonian socirty's FB page:
Join us on Saturday, March, 8 at 7:00 pm as we commemorate the 244th anniversary of the Boston Massacre. Witness this infamous event as it is reenacted in front of the Old State House, in the very place where it occurred in 1770.

Before the action unfolds, hear from patriots, loyalists, and moderates who will talk about the events and attitudes that led to that fateful night. Become part of the night, joining in with shouts of the crowd, taunting the British or condemning the raucous Bostonians. As they s
ay “the early bird gets the worm,” so come early and explore the newly re-done Council Chamber, learn more about the Boston Massacre, and get a great viewing spot for the event!

Can’t make the reenactment? Follow us on twitter for a live tweet of the reenactment! Find us @BostonianSoc using #bostonmassacre.

A big advance thank you to the reenactors and living historians from throughout New England participating who help bring this event to life! Please see for more details
