Crispus Attucks born November 17, 1723, we honor the life Crispus Attucks, the black and indigenous merchant and patriot. He was born a slave around in the (then) colony of Massachusetts. His father, Prince Yonger, was African and his mother, Nancy Attucks, was an Indian and possible descendant of John Attucks, a member of the #Natick tribe. John Attucks was executed for treason in 1676 during the King Philip War. The word "attuck" in the Natick language means deer.
In 1750, young Attucks, a slave of William Brown of Framingham, was an successful horse and cattle trader who did business with white men. He used the money he made to try to buy his freedom from his owner, William Brown, who refused his offer. Attucks ran away. He was never caught and nothing was known of him for nearly 20 years before he resurfaced again. Historians guess that he escaped to Nantucket, MA, and sailed as a harpooner on a whaling ship.
During those years, the American colonies resented having to buy almost everything from England and were unhappy about the lack of free trade. The most outspoken protests came from Massachusetts Colony. The British king, George III, sent two regiments into the Boston Harbor in the fall of 1769. Many conflicts with the citizens of Boston resulted, and one drew in Attucks who was living in Boston On March 5, 1770, Attucks was eating dinner when he became aware of a fight between Boston men and British soldiers. He went to Dock Square to investigate.
It has been said that he picked up a stick and shouted to the crowd gathered there to follow him to King Street. When they arrived, Attucks went to the front of the crowd and struck at one of the British soldiers. The soldier fatally shot him twice. Four other men were killed and six more wounded. The next day, Attucks' body was taken to Faneuil Hall.
#CrispusAttacks is believed to be the first man killed during the Boston Massacre and thus believed to be the first casualty of the American Revolution.
These two busy bunnies. So much love and energy from them this week! You can find @avickstrom tomorrow from 9-3 at the Glenwood Craft Fair at the Glenwood Elementary School in Rutland, and @ahenry314 is holding down the fort at the @ashlandmafm Farmers Market Harvest Festival from 9-1 at the Ashland middle School.

All driven by busy moms sharing my passion and vision, I am so in awe of their unflagging support. I could not do it without them. When you see them tomorrow tell them how amazing they are and bask in their total badassery.
