Back in 2014, I was honored to have Robert Allison, Professor of American History and Chair of the History Department at Suffolk University in Boston on the show to talk about the events of March 5, 1773.
I met (via the interwebs) Professor Allison via a mutual acquaintance, Todd Andrlik of ALL THINGS LIBERTY(I’m serious… bookmark that site and read it every day!), one of my favorite and one of – if not *THE* best – American history websites out there. Plus Todd’s book, Reporting the Revolutionary War is something that everybody should have and read.
At any rate, Professor Allison was on to talk about the true story of the Boston Massacre, which in many ways is far more interesting than the romanticized version that Paul Revere gave us.
