In this program, students go on a scavenger hunt inside Quincy House to find artifacts relevant to the Revolutionary War era, work together to construct a timeline of events leading up to the Boston Massacre, analyze primary source documents, and write with a quill pen. At the end of the program, students re-enact the Boston Massacre Trial, where Josiah Jr. defended the British soldiers while Samuel prosecuted them.
