Dear Reader,

As you read this, I’ll be in San Francisco speaking at the first annual ADSPACE conference for small to mid-size publishers about Adsense and other contextual advertising. I am on the last panel of the day, “The Master Class for Adsense Rock Stars — Tales on Generating Traffic and Contextual Profits.”

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve spoken on the topic of how to build an online business, but I used to blog about it quite a bit over at BarbaraFeldman.com. So, I’m thrilled to be getting “back in the saddle” again. Kinda makes me wonder if I should start another newsletter about online publishing topics. Anyone interested?

See ya on the Net,

#3. Boston Massacre

by Barbara J. Feldman

Boston Massacre Printable (** for premium members only)

Five years before the American Revolution, on March 5, 1770, a group of Boston citizens were fired upon by British soldiers in what became known as the Boston Massacre. The skirmish began with insults and snowballs hurled at the soldiers by a restless crowd, and ended with five colonists dead. It is known as the first of many events that fueled America’s growing discomfort with the King’s army.

America’s Story: Boston Massacre
Shown alongside a timeline of early American history, this three-page illustrated overview of the Boston Massacre is part of the Library of Congress’ educational America’s Story site. It introduces the conflict to elementary and middle school students, and places it in historical context. ” What started as a minor fight became a turning point in the beginnings of the American Revolution. The Boston Massacre helped spark the colonists’ desire for American independence, while the dead rioters became martyrs for liberty. Can you think of other major events in history that began with a small incident?”

Archiving Early America: Boston Massacre
Archiving Early America explores Paul Revere’s iconic color engraving of the Boston Massacre, revealing its omissions, exaggerations, and political impact. “Paul Revere wasted no time in capitalizing on the Massacre to highlight British tyranny and stir up anti-British sentiment among his fellow colonists. As you will see, Revere’s historic engraving is long on political propaganda and short on accuracy or aesthetics.”

Boston Massacre Historical Society
Calling itself a “digital gateway to the famous event”, this official site of the Boston Massacre Historical Society is my pick of the day because of its breadth. It includes facts, numbers, a look at Paul Revere’s engraving, a timeline, the British view, a variety of essays, and a collection of little known facts. “It all started from a wig! The Massacre started when a young wigmaker’s apprentice named Edward Gerrish called out to a British officer on duty, Captain Lieutenant John Goldfinch, that he had not paid his master’s bill.”
