Thomas Hutchinson

Ask your student about our distinguished guest on Friday afternoon. Thomas Hutchinson, lieutenant governor of Massachusetts, came to talk with us, the colonial Bostonians, about the new British laws taxing the colonists.  Governor Hutchinson met a crowd which is very displeased with these new taxes! He assured us that it is his job to enforce the British laws and ensure that the colonists pay the new taxes.

What will happen next.....?
