The Rhetorical Shot Heard 'Round the World: Legal and Extra-legal Strategies in the Boston Massacre Trials.
Chaly, Ingeborg
The major objectives of this paper are to explore those rhetorical strategies and tactics used by both loyalists and radicals in expressing their respective grievances following the Boston Massacre, and to assess their efficacy in so doing. The unique aspects of the colonial situation are explored, the reaction and behavior of the Bostonians are reviewed, and the legal proceedings in the matter considered, particularly as concerns John Adams' position as defense attorney and Josiah Quincy's position as prosecutor.
