Read the following historical perspectives from two modern-day historians. Which of the following explains why Historian B mentions the Boston Massacre while Historian A does not? Historian A: The American Revolution was caused by the American colonists’ greedy desire for more money. They were simply tired of paying their fair share of taxes to the British government, even though British troops protected the colonies during the French and Indian War! Furthermore, their claims to be fighting for freedom and liberty are totally wrong. Many of the colonists still owned slaves at the time of the Revolution! The traitorous American colonists simply wanted to steal land that was already claimed by Great Britain. Historian B: The American Revolution was completely justified due to Great Britain’s repeated abuse of the colonists. The British passed enormous taxes on goods in the colonies, even though the Americans had no say in the British government. British soldiers were also allowed to live in American houses and eat common people’s food without paying. During the Boston Massacre, British soldiers even fired their muskets into a crowd of civilians! Under such oppressive conditions, it’s no wonder that the patriotic colonists would want to fight for the freedom and liberty of all people!
A. Historian B tries to establish that high British taxes forced the colonists to commit acts of violence. B. Historian A does not want to mention any events that might make the British look cruel or aggressive. C. Historian B is biased in favor of the British and only includes information that supports them. D. Historian A makes the claim that the Boston Massacre was made up by lying American colonists.
I believe answer B.
