Amy Eason HIS 131-D8 February 14, 2013 Boston Massacre Analysis On March 5, 1770 an event occurred that would be in history books for centuries to come. With the political and social peace of colonial Boston under tremendous strain the people began to rise up against Parliament with anger, exasperation and embarrassment as their principal emotions. What is today known as the Boston Massacre is the result of the rising tension among the people of Boston due to the enforcement of the Townshend Acts in 1767 (Boston). Through the analysis of two very different accounts of the Boston Massacre: one being “An Anonymous Account of the Boston Massacre” from a 1849 reprint of A Short Narrative of the Horrid Massacre in Boston and the other being “Captain Preston’s Account of the Boston Massacre (1770) it is apparent that each is biased on the opinion of the writer, but both indicate the harsh political and social environment of colonial Boston. Looking first at the anonymous account, it is very descriptive of the events both leading up to the massacre and the massacre itself.

After committing these murders, the warriors “felt good” (140), believing they had successfully wiped out the affront against their tribal chief. Benedict argues that since within their society it was considered moral, even morally acceptable, to commit such murders, the fact that within most other societies such actions are deemed abnormal and immoral, is relevant. New Concepts One of the new concepts for which I gained enlightenment on is that on ethnocentrism. Benedict says this is done when one culture uses the standards of their own culture to evaluate their subjects study. The definition of ethnocentrism is the belief that one’s own ethnic group or culture is superior (488).
This shows he cares more about what is right for the people then his own personal benefits. The authors used very strong language quoted by Del. Davis throughout the paper such as, “the death penalty is flawed, ineffective and racially biased. And if we can get enough people to understand that, then in a few years we can repeal the death penalty in the United States once and for all” (Jealous & Braveboy, p. 11). Those sentences speak a lot about how powerful words can affect us.

He made sure to put on a façade which would lead the King’s men to believe he was still a respectful and loyal man.
