The Boston Massacre occured on the night of March 5, 1770. Five men were gunned down in cold blood by British soldiers. A trial followed the incident, and 2 British soldiers were found guilty of murder, and branded with an "M" on thier right thumbs. Fours soldiers were acquited, as well as their Captain ( Capt. Thomas Preston ).....

Question: Who was the lawyer that presented the defense for Capt. Preston?.......

Very good, Terry....a Midshipman guards his tomb 24/7, 365 day/year.....he, of course, is known as the "Father of the U.S. Navy", but never ranked higher than Captain while in the U.S. Navy.....
