JOHN ADAMS UNDER FIRE follows the aftermath of the Boston Massacre, where British soldier fired on civilians in Boston in 1770, which many believe to be the first shots fired in the American Revolution. Despite the outcry from his fellow patriots, the young lawyer John Adams vowed that the soldiers would receive a fair and just trial, and so he volunteered to defend them. Drawing from court transcripts and other primary sources, Abrams takes the reader back to the colonial period, showing how contentious and ominous the city was as the fire of resistance to English rule began to burn bright.
