Did You Know?
When the Boston Massacre monument was erected on Boston Common in the 1880s, the president of The Massachusetts Historical Society protested, "The crown of the martyr should not be placed on the brow of the ruffian."
Come to think of it, John Adams didn't speak too highly of the victims either.
