To the Editor:
The Boston Massacre was re-enacted on Saturday. In 1770 the score was Redcoats 5, Colonists 0. This time around, the rout was even more one-sided, 69-0, in favor of the Crimson (“Columbia football trounced by Crimson in Boston,” Nov. 3). Fortunately, the only harm was to the “pride” of the Lions.
Next year will be the 240th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. Alas, vengeance is not Columbia’s.
On December 16, 1773, a group of patriots disguised as Indians boarded a ship and dumped its cargo of tea into Boston Harbor. The name of the vessel: the Dartmouth.
