In your own words, describe the Boston Massacre.
What was the principle and argument of John Adams’ defense? Why did the jurors, being colonists themselves, vote not guilty?
Describe Abigail Adams counsel and comments of her husband’s views. Does he perhaps value her opinion above others, including his male peers?
What does it mean to “tar and feather” and “burn in effigy”? Why did the attack the customs officer attempting to get the tax for unloading the tea from the ship?
How did the British respond to the “Boston Tea Party”?
What purpose finally compelled John Adams to move into “political action” and go the (illegal by British law) First Continental Congress?
What were the motions put forth by this First Continental Congress that would be the first authorized actions given to the colonists by their own “represented government”?
