Discussion Board Forum 1 Replies

Consider your responses to your classmates in the second week of the forum as “Letters to the Editor.” Assume you are the reader of this newspaper and want to respond to what you read. Your responses must show some analytical thought and foster more dialogue. Ask questions, give a different point of view, bring up another aspect of the topic your classmates did not cover. Interaction such as this is what makes this assignment relevant and prohibits it from being a completion exercise. When writing your “Letters to the Editor,” you must respond to 2 of your classmates. One must be a reply/letter on the topic you read and wrote about, and the other reply/letter must be on a topic you did not choose. At least 150-200 words for each reply.

RE: Topic 4: The Boston Massacre – A Massacre or a Terrible Tragedy?


The Boston Massacre – A Massacre or a Terrible Tragedy?

By Crystal Frew March 7th, 1770

The brutal massacre that took place just two days ago, killing five civilians. The civilians in remembrance are Crispus Attucks, Samuel Gray, James Caldwell, Samuel Maverick and Patrick Carr. Was this a massacre or a terrible tragedy? Some may say a tragedy but I say it was a massacre. These soldiers had no right to kill those five men when all they were doing was protesting in what they believed to be right and at that being unarmed civilians. “So whatever you wish that other would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 7:122 ESV). “Even the Boston silversmith and engraver Paul Revere aligns the soldiers in a formal military pose and portrays the commanders as giving an order to fire.” (Keene, Cornell & O’Donnell 2013).

This unsettling event took place because many of our civilians disagree with the taxation on imported goods. Quite frankly, I disagree also, only because it is not our fault that there is so much debt from the wars. The taxation on goods is a violation of our rights. Being a female and a daughter of Liberty, I know many women who know how to sew clothes, grow food, etc. What we should do is start a boycott against the purchase of any imported British goods. Maybe if we boycott the importation of British goods then we as women will be able to start businesses. We can do this by ourselves as our own colony we just have to show the Parliament.

Coming back to the pressing issue with these soldiers and the murders that occurred, they should all receive the death penalty or life in prison. Shooting those men being unarmed and simply just boycotting for their rights in which they thought was right. There very well could have been other ways to go about punishment to the civilian’s maybe imprisonment, anything but murder. The situation was not that serious to be taken with such cruelty.

The Stamp Act – Justified or Too Much to Ask?

The Stamp Act: Just Too Much To Ask

I believe, that I speak on behalf of my fellow Americans; that not only is this Stamp Act offensive, but it is also unjust. The British Parliament has taken it upon themselves to pass yet another tax. Not only have we been prohibited from expanding westward with the proclamation of 1763, and lets not forget the Sugar act which just took place last year, but now we are to adhere to this Stamp Act which is just another tax impose to us by the Britain government. How many more taxes will we be subjected to?

This is one of the greatest problem we have here in the colonies, being taxed without representation. Being taxed without representation should cause the tax to be void. The British government should not be able require us to buy stamps for all our paper goods, saying that things like wills, deeds, newspapers  and even play cards now need to have an official stamp, why should we have to pay a collector? The British government cannot simply continue to pass any colonial legislation they seem fit. Many people inculding myself and family are distraught with this new act; I hear the men grumbling about having to buy stamps.

This Stamp Act impedes each of our men to procure special stamps. This is not only an injustice but it is too much. How can Britain continue to tax us without our consent or representation, this is a clear violation of our rights. We must speak up, the necessity the British may have cannot justify them to levy taxes on us, and we should not be burden by their financial problems. We cannot let the British attain authority over our colonies we must stand firm and defend our most essential colonial rights.
