8.) This account is trustworthy because Tomas Preston was the person that wrote this article. And plus there were many witnesses who clarified that Tomas Preston wasn’t lying, such as John Adams. Doc. B 1.) Samuel Drowne was one of the 96 residents of boston to give sworn testimony to justices of the peace about what happened between the British soldiers and residents of Boston. 2.) This document is a false testimony made by a man who tried to get the soldiers and Tomas Preston killed. 3.) This document was created in March 12, 1770. 4.) I think that this document will talk about what happened on the Massacre but another version of it. 5.) According to Article B, Samuel Drowne said that he saw when captain Preston and his soldiers came to Boston and started attacking innocent people. He also claimed that the soldiers carried weapons around with them such as swords, beyonets, some with clubs or fire shovels. He also said that Preston told his soldiers to fire to the Colonist. 6.) According to this document, the soldiers were responsible for the Boston Massacre because they were the first ones to start a fight with the Colonist by abusing them and violently assaulting them. 7.) Document A and B have nothing in common, they are two completely different stories. 8.) Document A and B are different from each other because Tomas Preston never told his soldiers to fire, but in the other article it says that Preston said, “ Damn your bloods! Why
don;t you fire?” 9.) This account is not trustworthy because this event is completely fake, nothing that said in the article happened that evening of the Massacre.
