Ceremonies and a protest are marking the 250th anniversary Thursday of the massacre in Boston that helped spark the Revolutionary War.

A morning tribute at the grave of the five victims of the fateful conflict included a wreath-laying ceremony and musket salute.

The commemoration at the Old Granary Burial Ground in downtown Boston was the first of a number of events expected to take place across the country in the coming years to mark the 250th anniversary of America’s war for independence, according to the Daughters of the American Revolution, which hosted the brief service.
