Anti-British tempers flared throughout the colonies. When a rumor announced that six  men had been killed by British troops in Boston, thousands of armed men from  Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New York set off to drive the British armies back into the  sea–only to turn back when word reached them that the rumor was false. Meanwhile,  Adams returned to Boston to find it radically changed. Tories from across the area had  fled into the city rather than take their chances in the patriotic countryside. Suddenly  Boston, guarded by British troops and men-of-war, had become a Tory safe-haven.  Orders arrived for the British troops to find and arrest Adams and other leading patriots,  but Adams fled safely to Lexington along with John Hancock before the British could  locate him.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
