Watercolor Boston Massacre
On March 5, 1770, a riot broke out in front of the Customs House in Boston. A large crowd armed with clubs and sticks poured through the passage leading to the Customs House where Private Hugh White was the sentry on duty. The rest is history! The copperplate used to produce this print is an exact replica of the original Paul Revere copperplate. Current-day Master Printer Gary Gregory at The Printing Office of Edes and Gill was allowed to scan the original, which is kept and preserved at the Massachusetts Archives. We enlisted the talented artist Andrew Volpe to take our black and white version and colorize it.
