In 1619, "20 and Odd" Blacks arrived in late August of 1619 aboard a Dutch man of war. These blacks were sold/traded into servitude for supplies.  In 1770, Crispus Attucks, a black man, became the first casualty of the American Revolution when he was shot and killed in what became known as the Boston Massacre.
