Description

A massacre in Boston. A tea party. A shot heard around the world. But who was the first casualty of the massacre? How did the tea get to Boston Harbor? What was the Battle of Concord like for a Minute Man? "Colonial Comics: New England, 1750 1775"expands the frame of this important period of American History. Unconventional characters come to life, including grave-digging medical students, counterfeiters, female playwrights, instigators of civil disobedience, newspaper editors, college students, rum traders, freemen, and slaves. This second volume of the Colonial Comics trilogy is an artful look of what life was like in the Pre-Revolutionary period, and illustrates how the Revolutionary spirit spread to the common man and woman, one gorgeous comic story at a time."show more

Review quote

In the first of three proposed anthologies, beautifully produced comics reveal the rich, often overlooked lives of Native Americans, women, and servants in colonial New England. Each of the two dozen selections is based on primary sources, and most pieces feature individuals whose names can be found fairly readily elsewhere. Unlike those other resources, however, the selections in this anthology take the vantage point of more marginalized groups, bringing attention to the people history has tended to view as mere props to stories featuring white male upper-class settlers.
