Stay away from the powdered wigs,chintzy music, and battles and kings which have been a staple of the film/tv genre. For an alternative to a law-and-order account of the Boston Massacre of 1770, see my  "Radical Plot in Boston (1770): A Study in the Use of Evidence," Harvard Law Review 84 (1970).  http://www.jstor.org/stable/1339722. Re-reading it for another purpose, I find it surprosigly like Occupy, with a temporary diminishing of rage afterwards -- and hostile intetpretations focusing on manipulation, ignoring the actual grievances.

      Great. I'm starting work on the upcoming Series "Sons Of Liberty" and
      wanted to get my knowledge correct.
