Publisher's Summary

For over 200 years, Americans have been fascinated by the Revolutionary period and the patriots who led the growing resistance movement against British authority. In particular, the clandestine activities of Boston's Sons of Liberty in the decade before the war continue to be a source of both intrigue and mystery.

The American Revolution had no shortage of compelling characters with seemingly larger than life traits. Perhaps no Revolutionary leader has been as controversial as Samuel Adams, who has been widely portrayed over the last two centuries as America's most radical and fiery colonist.

Paul Revere was one of the most prominent citizens in Boston, heralded for his silversmith work, his participation in the Sons of Liberty, and his service in the Massachusetts militia. Given everything he did, it would have no doubt greatly surprised Revere if he had known he would become an American legend for his midnight ride on the night of April 18, 1775.

John Adams remained a celebrated figure in Boston for all the work he did in Massachusetts before and after the Revolution, but his national reputation has experienced quite a renaissance over the past decade.

Most Americans are familiar with John Hancock because of his famous signature on the Declaration of Independence. That overshadowed the various and important contributions Hancock made in Boston before the Revolution, the Continental Congress during the Revolution, and Massachusetts state politics after the Revolution.

The Sons of Liberty chronicles the amazing lives and careers of the four most famous members of the Sons of Liberty, examines their relationships before and during the Revolution, and analyzes their lasting legacies. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about Samuel Adams, John Adams, Paul Revere and John Hancock like you never have before.

it should be required reading in our high schools.

a very well thought out and informative book about the lesser known, more volatile and arguably more interesting figures of the American revolution.

A well thought out summary of The Sons Of Liberty

I believe this book to be a very thought out summary of America's founding fathers. Comprised of details on how average men took arms and composed an unthinkable measure of taking on one of the biggest empires the world has ever know to become a nation of our own.
