Boston Massacre Trial Documents

Recently at’s Legal Blog Watch, in a post titled Massacring the Boston Massacre Trial, I wrote about bloggers’ critiques of the dramatization of that trial in the recent HBO miniseries, John Adams. Now you can obtain a less dramatic and perhaps more historically accurate perspective, by way of the Law Library of Congress, which has posted details about its collection of documents related to the trial — some of which are full text versions in PDF.
