Engravings from Nell's 1855 History

Crispus Attucks in Boston Massacre

Frontispiece illustration from the 1855 edition of "Colored Patriots of the American Revolution" by W.C. Nell shows Crispus Attucks, the "first martyr of the American Revolution" fired on by British soldiers in Boston on March 5, 1770. Note the difference between this illustration and the equally imagainary engraving by Paul Revere (below) from which it was clearly adapted.
