Engraving of the Boston Massacre, by Paul Revere (1770)

The continuing dispute over who has the right to levy taxes, and the conflicts between the British troops and the citizens of Boston, leads to more rioting and the Boston Massacre on March 5, 1770. Samuel Adams blames the British soldiers and plays it up for propaganda value.  The soldiers are put on trial, but John Adams successfully defends them as having acted in self defense.
