Origin Edit

The Boston Massacre occurred on March 5, 1770 when a young wigmaker's apprentice, Edward Garrick, accused Capt. Lt. John Goldfinch, of not paying a bill owed to Garrick's Master. Goldfinch ignored the insult, but Garrick took this to mean that Goldfinch thought he was above Garrick. As the night progressed, however, the two men continued bickering and the crowds around the men grew. The insults soon turned into fighting, and soon enough, the minor street confrontation turned into a fight between the rebels and British. The arguments became heated to the point that the British soldiers had drawn their guns and were prepared to fire. Captain Thomas Preston soon ordered his men to fire after one of the rebels had throw a rock into the crowd of soldiers.

Acquisition Edit

Having had several reports from New York about several small street brawls, agents from Warehouse 11 traveled to the United States to attempt recovery of this artifact from the National Armory in New York City. Despite having to use brutal force to obtain the artifact from the armory, the artifact was then shipped to Warehouse 11 by boat.

Effects Edit

Whenever someone is within the vicinity of the gun with negative emotions, the artifact will cause the negative emotions to radiate from the person. This will cause further negative emotions to build up in the person and anyone else in the vicinity of the gun. If enough negative energy is within the area, the gun will then proceed to fire on it's own.

Handling Edit

Protective gloves are mandatory when handling the artifact.
