Product Description
The complete title is, "The Bloody Massacre - A Re-Enactment of the events leading to the 'Incident on King Street."

This re-enactment is based on the actual eyewitness accounts from March 2nd to March 5th, 1770. In many cases, the characters speech is word for word from these eyewitnesses.

I use this in my classroom to give my students a chance to experience one of the most important events in US history - the Boston Massacre.

There are three scenes in the re-enactment and you can have all of your students participate to some degree. The first scene is at the docks on March 2nd, 1770. British soldiers tangled with some of the rope beaters along the ropewalk. The second scene takes place March 3rd in the Boston shop owned by a Daniel Calfe. It is based on the account given by his son, Daniel Calfe, Jr. many years later. The final scene is the "massacre" that happens outside the Customs House on King Street on March 5th.

Using a few props you may have lying around and arranging your classroom to look like King Street at that time in history and you will have a powerful lesson. Have fun!
