A New Method of Macarony Making, as practiced at Boston
Not on View
Published in London in 1774, this print spread news about the growing colonial resistance to British policies in America and helped to sway the British public’s opinion of the Sons of Liberty. The print mocks the Bostonians who tarred and feathered British tax official John Malcolm soon after the Boston Tea Party. Malcolm, who survived the attack, is shown begging for mercy as tea is about to be poured down his throat. The print hoped to encourage sympathy for Malcolm and ridicule for the Americans who assaulted him.
