#OnThisDay 1770 British soldiers fired upon a crowd (of “saucy boys”) in what became known as The Boston Massacre. Among the five civilians killed, was Patrick Carr from Ireland who died 9 days later. Carr forgave the soldiers & said they fired in self defence.

Hi, I'm David, I'm from Ireland. I am an avid fan of history. I have my B.A. in History, my M.A. in Military History and Strategic Studies,a Post Qualification Diploma in History and I've been teaching History for five years now. I wanted to create a podcast that examines, in great detail, major Irish battles and battles allover the world in various wars that Irish people played a significant part in. Hope you enjoy.
