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 protested 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.
