On March 6, 1770, church bells rang as a large group of colonists met outside the Customs House. Crispus Attucks, a former slave, yelled to the crowd, "They way to get rid of these soldiers is to attack the main guard." In the confusion that followed, the British soldiers fired. Five men were killed, including Attucks. The people of Boston were horrified of these killings.
