Produced just three weeks after the Boston Massacre, Paul Revere’s historic engraving “The Bloody Massacre in King-Street” was probably the most effective piece of war propaganda in American history. Not an accurate depiction of the actual event, it shows an orderly line of British soldiers firing into an American crowd and includes a poem that Revere likely wrote. Revere based his engraving on that of artist Henry Pelham, who created the first illustration of the episode—and who was neither paid nor credited for his work. GLC #01868
