About this title


British Regulars marched into Boston at midday on Saturday, 1 October 1768. For weeks there had been rumors that the landing would be resisted. But by four in the afternoon the two regiments were parading on the Common without incident. The troops were there to deter rioters, cow radicals, and support the civil government. There was no revolt to crush. No one expected war in 1769, but it was no longer unthinkable to Bostonians living alongside British soldiers or to British politicians discussing the allegedly treasonable activities of Bostonians. Their differences hinged on what Francis Bernard had been telling the British government.

This fifth volume of the Bernard Papers examines the evidence and debates as they unfolded in Boston and London. The stakes could scarcely have been higher in peacetime. When the British recalled Bernard with honor, the troops remained: the Boston Massacre was his legacy.


Praise for the previous volume: " "The Papers of Francis Bernard" is a tremendously significant collection, and once completed, a British scholar will have published the single most important addition to the source materials not just for the coming of the American Revolution in Massachusetts, but for late-eighteenth-century Imperial historiography in general, to have appeared in at least a generation.--Stephen Conway, University College, London
