PDA (analysis)

 

Please read/view and compare these various accounts and depictions of the Boston Massacre. In your analysis of these documents, address the following three (3) questions:

1. Which written account (Patriot or Loyalist) do you find more believable and why?

2. Based upon the written narratives and testimonies of the incident, how accurate do you believe the two depictions of the “Boston Massacre” (Henry Pelham’s and Paul Revere’s) are and why?

3. If you were an average colonist exposed to these various documents, would they have tipped the scale on your decision to rebel or stay loyal to the crown? Why?

Your responses to these three questions needs to total a minimum length of TWO FULL PAGES.

Please remember to use specific details from these documents to support your arguments.
