The streets and taverns of Boston before "The Bloody Massacre" were filled with brawls and scrapes, hot words and cold calculations. The Sons of Liberty, led by Samuel Adams and other firebrands, claimed high revolutionary ideals, while John Hancock and other well-to-do merchants found smuggling very rewarding. The Tory lords stuffed their pockets with silver and scorned the rude Americans and their democratic ideas. Informers worked both sides of the street while the Sons of Liberty directed crowds of itinerant, unemployed sailors and dockworkers who ruled the streets and intimidated Customs officials with beatings and hot tar. Nicholas Gray and Maggie Magowan run The Sword and Scabbard, a North End tavern which is home to both criminal and political intrigue. They view the politics of the time with a cynical eye but are eventually caught up in the conflicts. Finally, Nicholas must choose between saving himself and crippling the march towards the Revolution.
