From Plastic Tub

American, age unknown. He doesn't show up at all. His gift, a hand-held weather manipulation device, is still here.

A true and utter enigma, Matt T stunned the internet with the release of his curt yet revolutionary biography of Crispus Attucks, reproduced here in its entirety. Also an accomplished artist, his cunning play on text and image suggest he could probably have a one man show at a bar, or maybe a coffee shop.


Crispus Attucks By: Matt T.

Crispus Attucks was a slave. He was born in 1723 in Framingham, Massachusetts. He ran away to Boston at the age of 27.

On March 5, 1770, Crispus Attucks heard about a boy who had gotten beaten by a British soldier with his musket. Attucks gathered 100 angry colonist and he marched to some British soldiers.

Soon an impatient colonist threw a stick at a soldier. In fright for their lives the commander said to fire. The soldiers fired on the crowd and killed five colonists among whom was Crispus Attucks. Crispus Attucks is important because he was one of the first to die for the revolution and because he was the first black killed in the fight with the British.

This event caught the attention of Sam Adams and Paul Revere. Sam Adams and Paul Revere made an engraving to show the event. It showed the British soldiers murdering people. They did this so people would get angry at the British.

My picture shows Crispus Attucks on Dock Square, in the clothes his slavemaster said he wore when he ran away.

Attucks caught a lead ball in the belly, ensuring, ironically, an undying fame.
