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.
