An officer in the British Army who is sent to Boston to control the unruly citizens.
Thomas Preston is one of those men that historians desperately wish had kept a diary. All we know about his life is through his involvement with the Boston Massacre; we know next to nothing about his personal life, or his experience of Boston. What did he think about the Revolution? Did he think that the Bostonians were crazy, or did they have a point? Was he fighting for the ideals of the British Empire, or just following orders?
