    This blog carry from a fight between the Colonists got in to a fight with soldiers in march 5th 1778 . After that fight the Colonists and the soldiers still had a grudge aganst each other. The reason because of this fight is because is that King Goerge send his soldiers to collect taxt from the colonists when they had no say in this. That made the king very prejudise. One monday at 8:00 pm there was a soldier garding the Customs until a drunk colonist started to thearting the soldier the soldi hit the drunk colonist with back his gun. that draw atenchin to some dumb guy to ring the bell that made colonists come then genaral and 8 more soldiers. the genaral was in front of the 9 soldiers and the 60 colonists .
