Course Description:

By March 1770, the people of Boston had lived almost 18 months under British military occupation. The town was a powderkeg—and on March 5th, it exploded. Shots rang out on King Street and when the smoke from soldiers’ muskets cleared, five local men lay dead or dying on the snowbound street. In the first of two sessions, historian Richard Bell will draw on the latest scholarship to examine the Boston Massacre from all its many sides. In the second, he turns to the Boston Tea Party of December 16, 1773, exploring that unprecedented act of domestic terrorism not only in local, but also in global perspective. Dr. Bell demonstrates that the Tea Party was the first major protest against corporate greed and the effects of globalization and that it also brought on dramatic consequences that set the stage for the American Revolution.
