Boston Massacre Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tee
Boston Massacre Unisex Short Sleeve T-Shirt
On March 5th 1770 in Boston, colonists who were becoming increasingly angered by the taxation, rules, and presence of British regulars in their city started to harass a small group of soldiers, hurling insults and throwing snowballs. Eventually when things got out of hand, the English fired and left three dead instantly, two more died later of their wounds. Paul Revere made this drawing of their coffins which was later used in newspaper articles of the day.
Now, why make this shirt now? Why is it relevant? While its unfortunate lives were lost, one man being only 17, the point was there were people who were FED UP with being taxed with no representation, fed up with being told how much they were going to pay, for what, how much of their money they could keep. They were tired of the English who had no clue what it was like to live as one of them taking advantage of their labor, their lives, and sending soldiers to intimidate those who didn't fall into line.
What are we seeing today? We are seeing ordinary citizens rise up against mandates, against schools brainwashing our children. We are seeing people finding their voice and exercising their rights, and saying NO MORE. That spirit of resistance that turned the tide in 1770 and put us on a path to Revolution is back again!
