This Day in History: 1770- After three days of unrest, an angry mob gathers at the Customs House in Boston to protest the occupation of the city by the British.  The protest will lead to the British soldiers firing on the crowd and killing five Patriots.  The event, infamously known as “the Boston Massacre,” is regarded by some historians as the first act in the American Revolutionary War.

Fact of the Day: Crispus Attucks was an African-American Patriot, and was part of the angry mob which gathered at the Customs House in Boston on March 5, 1770.  He was killed in the brief skirmish which ensued, and is regarded as the first martyr of the American Revolution.

#StrangeButTrue: “Digging a hole to China” is theoretically possible if you start in Argentina.  You might potentially be hampered by the planet’s molten core, however.
