Samuel Adams


American statesman, a founding father of the USA, signer of the Declaration of Independence, and member of a noted family; his second cousin was John Adams who would become the nation's second President.

Samuel Adams was a founder of the Sons of Liberty and was a principal in the protest against the Stamp Act and in the protest known as the Boston Tea Party. He wrote prolifically in protest of British rule before and during the Revolutionary War. As a member of the Massachusetts Assembly, he advocated for a Continental Congress. After its formation he was appointed a representative.

In 1789 he was appointed lieutenant governor of the state of Massachusetts. Five years later, in 1794, he was elected Governor, a seat he held until his retirement in 1797. He died on 2 October 1803 in Boston, age 81. Boston's Republican newspaper the Independent Chronicle eulogized him as the "Father of the American Revolution".
