Eloquent, passionate, a man of ideas and action, Sam Adams, Thomas Jefferson noted, was, “truly the man of the revolution.” He was more than just religious, in the sincerest way; he was a man after God’s heart. Perhaps more than any American founder, the flame of liberty burned hottest in his heart and brightest in the darkest hours of the revolution. Adams was among the first to call for American independence from England’s chief tyrant, King George III. Sam Adams wrote relentlessly, articles and stories, challenging the soft creeping tyranny of taxes, rules and regulations England used to take more and more of the American people’s liberty, self determination and unalienable rights. He gave speeches, held meetings, organized gatherings and committees of correspondence to promote the flow of information that would advance unity among American colonies. He tirelessly stirred the discontented embers of resistance against “taxation without representation.” As the unseen host of the most famous tea party America has enjoyed, Sam Adams, helped birth a revolution in Boston that changed the world forever.

“It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen on setting brushfires in peoples minds.”
                  — Sam Adams
