In September of 1722, Mary Adams gave birth to a son, one who would eventually grow up and become another kind of Son – a Son of Liberty, that is. His name was Sam, and for all his lifetime he would be driven by his passion for freedom. Though initially a rather unsuccessful businessman, Sam Adams possessed a sharp mind and strong charisma and was elected to local office early in his life. When the British empire made the first of many attempts to levy new taxes on the colonies, to pay for the French and Indian War, Adams gained instant fame throughout Boston for publicly denouncing the practice. To Adams, the sin lay not in taxation or even the amount, but America’s inability to elect representatives to the very Parliament taxing them. His family was old Puritan stock, and the freedom to engage in his own representative, republican government was a freedom he cherished above all else.

One attempt at taxation followed another, from sugar to stamps to tea. Repeatedly the Americans retaliated with boycotts, demonstrations, and noncompliance. Whenever there was unrest in Boston, the royal governor of Massachussets frequently blamed that “agitator” Samuel Adams. From the Boston Tea Party to Continental Congress, Adams was everywhere, a tireless advocate for the growing cause of American independence.

During the war, Adams served as the Massachusettes delegate to Congress. Afterwards, he was elected president of the State Senate, then later still Lt. Governor of the state, and finally Governor itself. He worked in public office for a contiguous thirty-one years. Though an Anti-Federalist and initial opponent of the Constitution, he helped bring about the compromise of the Bill of Rights, and was so pleased with the result that he threw his efforts behind the Constitution’s ratification. Though he may not have attained the office of Presidency like his second cousin, Sam Adams played just as vital and invaluable role in the birth of our nation.
