The Boston Massacre was one of the moments that helped foment in the concept of the American Revolution in the minds of Colonists. The people of Boston were known for pushing back on unpopular Parliamentary legislation passed in London and enforced on the Colonists without any opportunity to represent themselves in Parliament.
On March 5, 1770, a group of American Colonists began to verbally abuse a British sentry. A troop of seven British soldiers under the command of Captain Thomas Preston arrived to reinforce the sentry and protect him from the colonists. As the colonists continued to harass the soldiers, one member of the group lost composure and fired upon the colonists. As a result, all of the soldiers fired upon the colonists. Three were killed immediately and two more later died from wounds.
The American Liberty Tree is featured on the obverse design of the 2020 2 oz Proof American Revolution Boston Massacre Silver Coins. The Liberty tree, as it became known, was an elm tree near Boston Common where colonists began gathering in 1765 to express displeasure with their treatment at the hands of the ruling British Empire.
A colorized work of art from Paul Revere features on the reverse of 2020 2 oz Proof American Revolution Boston Massacre Silver Coins. Revere created this work of art following the Boston Massacre for distribution in published works in the Colonies to drive home the threat the British posed to American Colonists. The design shows the British troops firing on the weaponless colonials.
