The Sons of Liberty were a pre-revolutionary secret organization that were opposed to British's rule over the original 13 colonies. Groups under the name of The Sons of Libert…y existed in every colony and worked to undermine British power in the area. They helped repeal the stamp act, and did so through various forms of violence, threats, and demonstrations. In addition, the group also help enforce an almost complete boycott on British goods following the passing of the Townshed Act. The Sons of Liberty often erected "liberty poles" in order to public show their anti-British feelings. They are also held responsible for the burning of the British Ship, the HMS Gaspee, and for the famous Boston Tea Party. The Sons of Liberty were also accused of the tarring and feathering of people loyal to the British Crown. Once the American Revolution began, the Sons of Liberty were largely disbanded or formed into other groups actively involved in fighting the British.
The Sons of Liberty was an underground resistance organization, that was made up of men and women (known as the Daughters of Liberty) from the New England colonies that pr…otested the intolerable acts that the British government put on them. Paul Revere and Samuel Adams were two of the leaders. Most of the members came from middle to upper class families, so they had money. They relied on public demonstrations to get support on their positions against the British government. Most of the time they used non violent acts, such as boycotts on taxed goods. However they were not above using violence. British supporters were sometimes tarred and feathered. The Sons of Liberty was a group of artisans and shopkeepers from Boston who rebelled against the stamp act in 1765. The Sons of Liberty was a society formed to protect the rights of colonists from British tyranny.
