One fateful March night in Boston, Massachusetts 1770 five men were killed and six more were wounded. Dubbed The Boston Massacre by the Sons of Liberty, this event was built up to be much more than it really was. The soldiers were not guilty, but simply victims of tragic circumstance. A common primary source looked at when referring to The Boston Massacre is Paul Revere’s The Bloody Massacre. The silver engraving appears to show the British soldiers standing in a line being commanded to shoot at the colonists who are running away in fear.

The massacre lasted for less than an hour, but the death toll was high, with 150 Lakota dead and 50 wounded. The siege of Wounded Knee occurred over 80 years later in the year 1973. Before the siege started, members of the Lakota tribe, whose ancestors were involved in the Wounded Knee massacre, and other tribes decided to meet in order to discuss issues such as high unemployment rates and the policies of the Federal Government concerning the tribes. This meeting formed the American Indian Movement, or AIM.
The sheriff struck the rope with an ax and sprang the trap door, and John's body dropped. His pulse did not stop beating for thirty-five minutes. Just over a month earlier, John Brown had been tried and convicted of murdering four whites and a black man, conspiring with slaves to rebel, and with treason against Virginia. The sudden rush of the trial, it's ill-prepared counsel, Brown's suffering physical condition, being tried in a state court for a federal crime, and overall nature of the indictment fueled the fire of those who argued the fairness of the trial. To this day, Americans are divided on on the question: Was John Brown a martyr to be admired or a
“A force of some 50 French soldiers and 200 Abnaki and Caughnawaga Indians from Canada, under the command of Major Hertel de Rouville, attacked the stockaded village of Deerfield on the northern frontier of Massachusetts” (Howstuffworks.com, 1998-2014).

On the night of January 8th, Deslondes gathered his men, and carried out his plan for the revolt, the first attack was plantation home of Manuel Andry. Upon entering Andry’s home, Deslondes and the twenty-five slave rebels stormed into Andry’s room killing his son, Gilbert Andry, only wounding Manuel who escaped.

The best guess is that over 100,000 people perished in and around London, though the figure may have been much higher. Heroism in the midst of horror. One footnote to this tale of horror. The plague broke out in the village of Eyam in Derbyshire, brought on a shipment of old clothes sent from London. The villagers, led by their courageous clergyman, realized that the only way to stop the spread of the plague to surrounding villages was to voluntarily quarantine the village, refusing to leave until the plague had run its course.
The Brits and Dutch signed a treaty in 1619, which allowed the British 1/3 of the spice industry and gave the Dutch the rest. In 1623, the British East India Factory in the Pacific was attacked by the Dutch. The ones who died immediately were lucky because the survivors were tortured and then were killed. After the collapse of imperialism, many countries regained control of their land and changed their names back to what they were before. Imperialism and slavery were so horrendous back then.
